Initial Outcomes for Innovation Panel Wave 1 Before Re-issuing
We are doing some research on the effect of interviewers on the effectiveness of incentives, one of the data sets we are using is the Innovation Panel (Wave 1). It is the sample file which shows the fieldwork outcome for each issued address and has the interviewer ID attached. We have come across a potential problem with your analysis which relates to whether the outcome data is based on the initial (prior to re-issues) or final (after re-issues) outcomes. We think it is the initial outcome but cannot tell from the information provided. Because our analysis uses the experimental design of within-interviewer allocation of the incentive, it is important that our analysis is based on the initial rather than the final outcomes.
I wonder whether a data set with the initial outcome codes is available for Innovation Panel wave 1 and how we can obtain it?
