YIR-FEE1 []Section: Interviewer Remarks

The next few questions will allow us to analyze the impact of differing respondent fees, the use of gift cards, and in-kind gifts on cooperation. This information will be used to inform practices for future rounds.

We will ask you to enter separately the base fee (usually $30), and any additional fees paid (e.g., NIR), gift cards given, or other tokens of appreciation (e.g., pizza, flowers, child toys, pet treats, etc.) in the grid below. Once you have completed your entry, you will move to the next screen where the total will be presented and you will have an opportunity to review to ensure that the information is complete and accurate.

In order to enter the information, please click on"Modify Row" next to the appropriate line of the roster. If a particular fee type was not used, please leave the initial "0" for the amount.

If you enter any amounts in the in-kind payment categories, you will be asked to confirm these amounts and supply some additional information on following screens.

Please do not attempt to modify the amount next to "Total". This amount will be recalculated and presented on the following screen.
