The 2016 Taiwan Communication Survey (Phase One, Year Five): Risk and Disaster Communication
The 2016 Taiwan Communication Survey (Phase One, Year Five) centers on risk and disaster communication. The topics in the survey include risk and disaster communication behaviors, risk and disaster attitudes, and risk and disaster preventive behaviors.
The face to face interviews were conducted from September 27, 2016 to November 14, 2016. The interviews were conducted among 2,098 Taiwanese citizens, who were 18 years or older and living in the current address at least four days a week.
To conduct the interviews, tablet computers with self-developed Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) software were used. The CAPI system can minimize potential errors resulting from skipping questions, missing answers, contradictory results, and conflicting responses. In addition, the system is equipped with a data uploading function, which expedites the data entry and error-checking processes after interviews. Regarding the survey process, interviews were conducted by a well-trained survey team led by a professional survey company with years of experience in the field.
The data products of this survey (including questionnaires,SPSS files, and report) have been released in July 2017.
