Background Many population health surveys consist of a mixed-mode design that includes a face-to-face (F2F) interview followed by a paper-and-pencil (P&P) self-administered questionnaire (SAQ) for the sensitive topics. In order to alleviate the burden of a supplementary P&P questioning after the interview, a mixed-mode SAQ design including a web and P&P option was tested for the Belgian health interview survey.

Background Multi-mode data collection is widely used in surveys. Since several modes of data collection are successively applied in such design (e.g. self-administered questionnaire after face-to-face interview), partial nonresponse occurs if participants fail to complete all stages of the data collection. Although such nonresponse might seriously impact estimates, it remains currently unexplored. This study investigates the determinants of nonresponse to a self-administered questionnaire after ...

Introduction In addition to Face-To-Face (F2F) interviews, the Belgian Health Interview Survey (BHIS) includes paper-and-pencil (PP they were invited to complete the web SAQ and only in case of an explicit refusal the P&P option was proposed. The participants who agreed to complete the web SAQ but did not complete it were sent two postal reminders. Based on this study, the acceptance rate of the web SAQ among the participants eligible to complete the web SAQ was assessed. In addition, determinan...

Objectives Substitution of non-participating households is used in the Belgian Health Interview Survey (BHIS) as a method to obtain the predefined net sample size. Yet, possible effects of applying substitution on response rates and health estimates remain uncertain. In this article, the process of substitution with its impact on response rates and health estimates is assessed.

National Health Interview Surveys are used to produce country-wide results for a substantial number of health indicators. However, if some educational groups are underrepresented in the sample, estimates may be biased. This study investigated the impact of the use of post-stratification weights that adjust for the population distribution by education on estimates from the Belgian Health Interview Survey 2013. For 25 health-related indicators that match the European Core Health Indicator shortlis...

Research policy observers are increasingly concerned about the potential impact of current academic working conditions on mental health, particularly in PhD students. The aim of the current study is threefold. First, we assess the prevalence of mental health problems in a representative sample of PhD students in Flanders, Belgium (N = 3659). Second, we compare PhD students to three other samples: (1) highly educated in the general population (N = 769); (2) highly educated employees (N = 592); an...
