NFI President Christopher A. Brown sits on the Fatherhood Research & Practice Network (FRPN) advisory committee. FRPN has announced their next (and eighth!) free webinar for researchers and practitioners.
Achieving High Response Rates and Dealing with Missing Data in Fatherhood Evaluations
Date: Tuesday, June 13 from 12-1:30 p.m. EST.
Online registration is now open!
High rates of attrition reduce the credibility of research findings. Achieving High Response Rates and Dealing with Missing Data in Fatherhood Evaluations will focus on the fundamentals of maximizing response rates and practical approaches for handling missing data in fatherhood evaluation studies.
It will feature staff from Mathematica Policy Research who conducted the Parents and Children Together (PACT) evaluation, a large-scale, multi-site project involving Responsible Fatherhood and Healthy Marriage programs that included a 12-month follow-up survey, where the research team achieved a high response rate.
Webinar presenters will describe:
- The various contact information and consents programs and researchers should collect at enrollment,
- Effective ways of keeping in touch with respondents over time,
- Statistical approaches to handling missing data, and
- How to interpret evaluation results considering different levels of missing data.
