At the request of the Bureau of Justice Statistics and the Demographic Surveys Division, staff from the Center for Survey Measurement cognitively pretested the revised Identity Theft Supplement for the 2012 National Crime Victimization Survey.
Results of 18 cognitive interviews conducted in September and October, 2011 showed the following: 1) respondents misreported misuse of debit cards as misuse of credit cards when the question about credit cards was placed first; 2) respondents had difficulty identifying what was an “occasion” of misuse of personal information (which could be several misuses of a stolen credit card) as opposed a single misuse of a credit or debit card; 3) respondents frequently were not able to report how many hours they spent clearing up financial or credit problems caused by the misuse of their personal information; and 4) respondents reported incidents of identity theft and attempted identity theft in answering the questions.
