Interviews: PinUK survey fieldworkers

The ‘Poverty in the UK: advancing paradata analysis and open access’ research study traced and video-interviewed 8 of the field interviewers for the 1968-69 Townsend Poverty in the UK survey: Angela Avens, Andrea Cordani, Deidre Forsyth, Morag Macdonald, Ian NcCannah, Annie Neligan, Fred Twine and Una Widdett. 

Some of these field workers were students doing the work as a summer job, others were more experienced research interviewing.  These interviews provides unparalleled insight into the conduct of the survey and the role of the field worker.

The interviews were conducted by Karen Bell (university of Bristol) and Heather Elliot (Institute of Education, UCL) for the ‘Poverty in the UK: advancing paradata analysis and open access’  study
