About this Release

As the ABS reintroduces Computer Assisted Interviewing (CAI) for household surveys, a number of important issues are currently being considered to enable a successful transition. One of the issues under consideration is determining the appropriate screen layout for interviewers. This paper summarises the issues pertinent to designing a suitable screen layout to assist in the minimisation of measurement error. The paper covers the following main issues:

  • purpose of this paper;
  • history of CAI in the ABS;
  • CAI screen presentation in the ABS;
  • principles of good screen design (for example, mixed case text and context); and
  • proposed useability testing methodology
