Primary Outcomes (end points)
The primary outcomes for this study will be measured under three key domains:
0. Take Up:
- Measures of supervisor presence during household surveys conducted by the worker: we use interview-level supervisor reports, worker reports, and GPS coordinates.
- Knowledge Flows: we use interview-level field notes from supervisors on i) their assessments of worker performance; and ii) whether they provided workers any advice/tips upon the completion of the interview. Workers also report the receipt of advice, the nature of advice received, and the mode of communication (if any) with their supervisors regarding each interview.
1. Production Efficiency:
- Time spent on a survey module by each worker. This is measured using time stamps (in milliseconds) in the electronic survey platform.
- Minutes over/under a benchmark range of time spent to complete each survey module
2. Output Quality
- Kullback-Liebler Divergence or Relative Entropy, i.e., the distance between the distribution of responses collected by worker x vs. all other workers. This measure is calculated at the survey-question level.
- The use of survey codes: ‘Don’t Know’, ‘Refused’ and ‘Other, Specify’ in each survey module.
- Error rates from backchecks of a random sample of respondents.
