Magdalena Ramos and Elizabeth Sweet

KEY WORDS: Electronic Reporting, Vendor, Modem

ABSTRACT

In 1993 a Computerized Self-Administered Questionnaire (CSAQ) pilot test was conducted on selected Company Organization Survey (COS) respondents which were interested in reporting electronically. This memorandum highlights the Census Bureau's capability to develop a CSAQ instrument and efficiently handle the diskette mailing/receipt operation. Also documented is the survey respondents' ability to use the electronic questionnaire and their acceptance of this reporting alternative. Additional questions concerning the CSAQ which were not answered by this test are identified.
