Reliability and Validity Evaluation Based on Monte Carlo Simulations in Two-Stage Cluster Sampling on Sensitive Question Survey
In this paper, additive randomized response technique (RRT) model was presented in application to asking questions on sensitive topic in a survey of men who have sex with men (MSM) in Beijing, China. And MSM were selected by two-stage cluster sampling design. Monte Carlo simulation was successfully applied in the assessment of reliability and validity in additive RRT model for sensitive question investigation in two-stage cluster sampling.
