Are we done yet? : response fatigue and rural livelihoods
The paper examines an important yet under studied factor affecting the quality of existing micro data on labor supply: response (to survey) fatigue. This underestimation differentially impacts women and youth, leading to meaningful economic and systematic biases in understanding peoples’ livelihoods.
As well, non-randomized household rosters systematically list youth and women later, exacerbating losses in reported labor activities. On average, estimated overall losses in terms of unreported labor activities are just under 8%. In the newly applied model these effects are nearly twice as large for women (10%) as for men (5%), and five times larger for youth age 14-24 (10-12%) than for adults age 35-59 (2.1%).
