Free List Interviewing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Free listing is an open-ended interviewing technique, eliciting as many responses as possible from each respondent for a single question. It is valuable when trying to understand the breadth of a topical area, structure within a domain, and generating content for writing survey questions. Probing questions facilitate the generation of an exhaustive set of responses from each respondent and facilitate the collection of a comprehensive set of responses with small samples of respondents.
