Data Privacy Concerns as a Source of Resistance to Participate in Surveys Using a Smartphone App
Early studies investigating willingness to participate in surveys involving smartphone data collection apps – and particularly, to consent to passive data collection – have identified concerns relating to data privacy and the security of shared personal data as an important explanatory variable. This raises important practical and theoretical challenges for survey methodologists about how best to design app-based studies in a way that fosters trust, and the implications for data quality. Few studies to date, however, have actually tested app-based data collection in the context of a probability-based general population survey. In this presentation, I will present results from a three-wave online panel study investigating the feasibility of conducting general population surveys using a smartphone app in Switzerland. I will present an overview of the design of the study and different indicators relating to willingness to participate, describe how data privacy concerns vary among population subgroups, and how concerns relate to stated and actual willingness to participate in app-based surveys.
