  • The literature suggests that, in general, individuals tend to underreport behaviors that are culturally sensitive in face-to-face interviews (FFIs), and this problem increases if the interview is conducted in an environment with low confidentiality, as could be the case in the study participants' households, where these type of behaviors are normally hidden (4, 5).

  • The use of ACASI systems in disadvantaged households to obtain data on adolescent risk behavior is not only feasible but may also improve data quality in the case of complex questionnaires, compared with FFIs, and should therefore be considered as an alternative survey method. (scielosp.org)
  • A major limitation to gathering representative data from this population, which includes both in-school and out-of-school adolescents, is related to complications in obtaining sensitive information (i.e., reporting of risk behaviors) from the respondents in the household setting-the optimal sampling unit.
