Abstract:Asking questions by means of a survey is a commonly used way to gather information about a wide variety of subjects. When questions are asked about sensitive topics misreporting tends to be a big issue and the data gets corrupted. Several general ways of reducing bias for questions on sensitive subjects will be discussed before turning to the evaluation of different ways of collecting data. Randomized response methods have been developed to reduce misreporting and they will be explained and some (dis)advantages will be discussed. A more extensive evaluation will be given of the Crosswise- and Triangular method and ways of analyzing data collected using these methods will be discussed. It will be shown how to analyze multiple questions and a theoretical approach will be given to measure individual respondents given data collected via the Crosswise- or Triangular method.
