Abstract: Coding of interviewer and respondent behavior within the fielded interview has become an important tool for evaluating survey questions. Cannell et al (1968) described a behavior coding system that has evolved into perhaps the one most commonly used for this purpose (Fowler and Cannell, 1996). Previous research (e.g., Oksenberg et al, 1991; Zukerberg et al, 1995; Edwards et al, 2002) has focused on issues such as the system's reliability, whether it works equally well with live monitoring and recorded interviews, the sample size needed for pretesting, and the number of codes needed to identify questions that present problems for interviewers and respondents. This paper will describe an extension of behavior coding to assess questionnaire functioning across language, as part of an evaluation of the degree to which translated versions exhibit cross-cultural equivalence. For this study, behavior coding was performed for several portions of the questionnaire administered to adults (via telephone) in the 2003 California Health Interview Survey. The sample of interviews to be coded was selected so as to include interviews conducted in English, Spanish, and Korean. Further, language of interview and respondent cultural group were independently varied, so that some Korean respondents were interviewed in English and some in Korean; Latino respondents were interviewed in both Spanish and English; all other respondents were interviewed in English. Bilingual staff applied a system of codes specifically adapted for use in cross-cultural applications, and coded interviewer and respondent behaviors from the recorded interview segments. The paper will describe the coding process, assess inter-coder reliability across languages, and compare the frequency of problem codes across cultural group and across languages of interview. In summary, the paper will discuss the usefulness of behavior coding as a potential means for assessing the cross-cultural functioning of survey questions.

Abstract: The aim of this paper was to explain the vote in the 2003 Mexican legislative elections. To do so, I utilized a post-electoral public opinion poll carried out by Parametrica. Rational Choice theory, the institutional (political cynicism) and the societal approaches provided the general framework of analysis. Borrowing from this literature, I argued that party id, political cynicism, and societal factors (social class) mostly explain the voting turnout in the 2003 legislative elections. Results from a probit regression analysis indicate that this actually was the case, although not all the variables (especially within the political cynicism factors) were significant. The probability of a positive voter voting (86.86) is higher than the negative voter’s (36.32).

Abstract: We examine the traditional deterrence game between Challenger and Defender. We treat three variations of the game – the complete information game, the one-sided information game, and the two-sided information game. We employ sequential decision theory to analyze the games of incomplete information. Specifically, we examine the behavior of Challenger first using a von-Neumann-Morgenstern decision rule and then compare that to Challenger’s behavior under a Kahneman-Tversky decision rule. The formal results show that given the right combination of outcome valuations and probability values and weightings, a Challenger employing the Kahneman-Tversky decision rule will make choices that are reversed from those made under the von Neumann-Morgenstern decision rule. We also claim that these reversals in Challenger’s behavior occur in the game of two-sided incomplete information. In the application section, we illustrate the explanatory power of these models via analyses of the 2003 US-Iraq War.
