Social information processing and survey methodology

The main objective of this volume is to further the recently initiated dialog between survey researchers and cognitive psychologists. To date this dialog has involved only a few people. With this book we want to let others know what has been happening so that they can benefit from and contribute to what we believe is an exciting and valuable cross-fertilization of two deeply interrelated disciplines. (from the introduction); Most of the chapters in this book are revised versions of papers presented at an International Conference on Social Information Processing and Survey Methodology held in July, 1984, at the Center for Surveys, Methods, and Analysis (ZUMA e. V.)in Mannheim, West Germany. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
