Follow-up investigation of hiwiki response rates
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Goal: to investigate possible causes of extremely low observed survey initiation rates on hiwiki

Research questions:

  1. Do low response rates generalize to other "South Asian" language projects?
  2. Are low response rates specific to link-out surveys? (IE, do demographic surveys on Quicksurvey yield much higher responses)?
  3. Are low response rates due in part to high bot traffic? (IE, do write-in responses yield similar completions/distributions as multiple choice)?


  • Draft research design
  • Field pilot quicksurveys on hiwiki and other South Asian Wikipedias

Event Timeline


  • Potential reprioritization in readers survey analysis goals may mean that this cannot be prioritized this quarter
