Paradata are the data automatically generated when respondents answer web surveys. There are many different kinds of web survey paradata, including email tracking tools, user agent strings (to identify devices used), and server-side and client-side paradata providing information on things like response times, mouse-clicks, scrolling behaviour, and so on. This course will provide participants with an overview of the different types of web paradata, and how they can be collected, managed, and analysed to provide useful information on data quality and nonresponse in web surveys, leading to design improvements.
