Accommodation Industry Survey, Financial Year 1997/1998
F. Respondent Load
On average, how long will a respondent be expected to spend in completing each questionnaire? How has this estimate been derived? (F1)
What steps have been taken to reduce the burden on small businesses, eg use of a reduced questionnaire? (F2)
Overlapping selections for the Economic Activity Survey identified, and information collected on EWS' behalf. For a number of years now, SIS (and other collections) and EWS have taken their own independent samples. The two samples are matched and the matches are collected by SIS and applicable data transferred to EWS. One of the problems being that EWS have some requirements that are not specific AIS requirements - so rather than inflict these additional requirements on all AIS respondents a special form type is designed for AIS/EAS overlap units.
This broad design procedure is to be investigated for the 1998-99 round of collections.
