Personal Interview (CAPI)

Due to methodology it can sometimes become unavoidable to interview respondents in personal. Either the topic is too complex to be represented in questionnaire form or the duration of the interview exceeds the framework for telephone interviews.

In this case, the interviewer visits respondents by appointment either at their job place or at home to conduct the interview. Specially trained and selected interviewers conduct these interviews using a notebook and then transfer the results per e-mail to the host computer for further processing. This ensures the desired rapid availability of the results.
