Additional reading (optional) for Thursday

In addition to the assigned Suchman and Jordan article on ‘interactional troubles in face-to-face survey interviews’ I’ve uploaded comments that were published along with this piece in the Journal of the American Statistical Association. Some of these comments explain and defend survey research against the validity concerns posed by Suchman and Jordan and add some further insight into how qualitative and quantitative researchers think in different ways about the methods they use.
