    Careless responding in surveys: A barrier to effective data-driven decision making

    Nate Voss, Ph.D., FMP Consulting

    While organizations are increasingly aiming to be more data-driven, the data underlying many organizational decisions are not always of high quality. This is especially true for survey data, which can be contaminated with careless responding (i.e., participant responses that are not effortful, accurate, or valid). Making substantive business decisions based on low-quality survey data can be precarious for financial, legal, and strategic reasons. Moreover, low-quality survey data can also cause survey administrators, leaders, and other stakeholders to have an inaccurate understanding of their workforce.

    In this presentation, Nate Voss will (1) define careless survey responding and differentiate this response behavior from related concepts, (2) highlight recent research on the causes of careless responding, (3) discuss the many ways careless responding can distort survey results, and (4) summarize evidence-based strategies that can be used to address careless responding, secure higher quality survey data, and help practitioners make better data-driven decisions.
