Audit of the baseline household survey in site I
Assesses the completeness and reliability of baseline (1974) data describing households and their housing for a stratified probability sample of residential properties in Brown County, Wisconsin (Site I of the Housing Assistance Supply Experiment). Interviews were obtained from 3,853 households, over three-quarters of those sought. Few interviewer and data preparation errors were found, and many of those were corrected. After data cleaning, less than 2 percent of applicable fields lacked usable data. Two analysis samples were created (field-complete and income-complete). Neither sample showed evidence of important nonresponse biases, with the exception of mobile home park properties. Records in the analysis samples were weighted to represent the sampled population.
