Refusal conversion is a common feature of most surveys. It entails re-approaching sample members who declined the first request to participate in the study, with the intention to convince them to participate after all. This procedure is successful in increasing survey response rates. This guide provides an overview of common practices in refusal conversion and how it is used in the Swiss Household Panel.
