Personnel and Training Required

The interviewer must be trained to conduct personal interviews with individuals from the general population. The interviewer must be trained and found to be competent (i.e., tested by an expert) at the completion of personal interviews.* The interviewer should be trained to prompt respondents further if a "don’t know" response is provided.

* There are multiple modes to administer this question (e.g., paper-and-pencil and computer-assisted interviews).

Equipment Needs

While the source instrument was developed to be administered by computer, the PhenX Working Group acknowledges these questions can be administered in a noncomputerized format (i.e., paper-and-pencil instrument). Computer software is necessary to develop computer-assisted instruments. The interviewer will require a laptop computer or handheld computer to administer a computer-assisted questionnaire.

Definition

Question asking the respondent for his or her current address.

Purpose

Current address is the location of the respondent’s primary residence. The proximity of the respondent’s residence to environmental sources may or may not influence his or her health (e.g., living within 100 meters of a major urban roadway might influence person’s respiratory health). Current address information (street address, city, state, and zip code) can be geocoded (geographical latitudes and longitudes), if necessary.
