Field Interviewers: Field interviewers conduct in-person interviews with selected respondents. These interviews will be conducted using
computer-assisted or paper questionnaires, depending on study requirements. Field interviewers are responsible for contacting respondents at homes,
businesses, or schools to conduct the interviews. They transmit the interview data back to the home office.
Listers: Listers may record addresses for residential structures such as houses, apartment buildings, and mobile homes for household surveys, or they
may record addresses and short descriptions for commercial structures such as shopping centers, office buildings, restaurants, and other
Assessors: Assessors administer standardized tests, most frequently to children in schools, though other settings and respondents may be included.
Medical Records Abstractors: Abstractors review medical records and record information from the files as specified by the study protocol. Medical
abstractors usually conduct their work at hospitals and doctors' offices.
Other Data Collectors: These positions range from performing clerical work, to observing behavior (e.g., observing seat belt use), to health
professionals conducting medical examinations. END QUOTE:
