Interviewer falsification can adversely affect survey data quality and lead to biased population estimates. In the context of policy research, undetected falsifications can be problematic since the falsified data might produce results that lead to a misallocation of public funds. In order to prevent or rather identify cases of interviewer falsification, efficient and cost-effective quality control strategies are needed. In this talk, I discuss recent developments and strategies for detecting interviewer falsification based on research conducted at the German Institute for Employment Research.
