Can the forms be administered orally or over the telephone?

Except for the SCICA and DOF, our forms were designed to be self-administered. You may prefer to administer a form orally if a respondent may be unable to complete the form independently.

To administer the form orally, an interviewer should give the respondent one copy of the form while retaining a second copy and saying: “I’ll read you the questions on this form and I’ll write down your answers.” If the form is to be administered over the telephone a copy of the form should be sent to the respondent to view during the telephone administration.
