Policy analysts, program managers, budget analysts, and Congressional staff use AHS data to advise executive and legislative branches about housing conditions and the suitability of public policy initiatives. Academic researchers and private organizations also use AHS data in efforts of specific interest and concern to their respective communities. HUD needs the AHS data for the following two reasons: 1. With the data, policy analysts can monitor the interaction among housing needs, demand and supply, as well as changes in housing conditions and costs, to aid in the development of housing policies and the design of Information collection Number of respondents Frequency of response Responses per annum Burden hour per response introducing bias to the sample characteristics of respondents randomly selected to receive incentives at random. Additionally, the incentive amounts will be randomly varied among respondents selected to receive incentives. Conditions will be compared to determine sensitivity to the amount of the incentive in motivating response compared to a no-incentive control. The incentive project will address the following research questions: 1. Can incentives reduce nonresponse bias in the AHS? 2. Where is the inflection point for diminishing marginal returns for monetary incentives? 3. What are the effects of introducing incentives into a panel survey on responses in later survey waves?
