Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI)

Using powerful mobile interviewing stations, the Survey Research Program has the capability to conduct in-person interviews.  With this type of interview an interviewer, using a laptop computer, reads questions to the respondent and then enters the answers directly into a database on the laptop computer.  CAPI is programmed similar to Computer-Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI), and provides the same advantages (automated skips, randomized experiments, etc.).

The Survey Research Program CAPI solutions are part of our integrated interviewing system.  In addition, SRP provides consulting services for organizations wanting to operate their own CAPI systems.
