Assesses the completeness and reliability of data collected in the baseline (l973) landlord survey in Brown County, Wisconsin (Site I of the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment). Survey fieldwork yielded successful interviews in 70 percent of the 2,970 sought; about 30 percent of the successful interviews were validated by recontacting the respondent. Each record was tested for response and data preparation errors. Two smaller analysis samples were derived by deleting records of up to 20 percent of completed interviews with inadequate property revenue and expense data. No meaningful nonresponse bias was found in regular rental sampling strata; that found in the specialized mobile home and rooming house strata was corrected by weighting. Both weighted analysis samples adequately represent the county's 6,850 properties.
