Cognitive testing of Wave 3 Understanding Society questions

Abstract: New survey content for Wave 3 of Understanding Society includes social networks, non-resident relationships, and a variety of cognitive functioning measures. This report evaluates these items using cognitive testing. A key focus is on respondents who are non-native English speakers. Survey interviewing is routinely done with respondents who have adequate English, though this may belie comprehension and other response problems not ordinarily evident in survey data. Cognitive testing with this population, therefore, facilitated redesign of these survey items to address potential prejudice caused by poor language ability.
