The Role of Time, Weather and Google Trends in Understanding and Predicting Web Survey Response [article]

Qixiang Fang, Joep Burger, Ralph Meijers, Kees van Berkel
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Using discrete-time survival analysis, we find, among others, that weekends, holidays, pleasant weather, disease outbreaks and terrorism salience are associated with fewer responses.  ...  Furthermore, we show that using these variables alone achieves satisfactory prediction accuracy of both daily and cumulative response rates when the trained model is applied to future unseen data.  ...  Mirjam Moerbeek for their insightful advice to the current research project and Christian Fang MSc (Utrecht University) for his help with proofreading.  ...
