Jacqueline Lee publishes article on respondent fatigue in efforts to reduce white-collar crime


Jacqueline G. Lee, an assistant professor of criminal justice in the School of Public Service, co-authored a new article published in the Jan. 25 edition of Criminal Justice Policy Review. “Respondent Fatigue in Estimates of the Cost of White-Collar Crime: Implications From Willingness-to-Pay Surveys” looks at the effect of respondent fatigue in surveys which measure the willingness of respondents to pay for reductions in crime.

The research indicated that willingness to pay to reduce crime increases when both problematic response patterns and fatigue effects are accounted for in the survey calculation.
