"Sometimes the respondents do not want to give correct information when answering a ques-tion. For example, many respondents will not disclose their true incomes on questionnaires or in interviews. When information on income is provided, it is almost always biased in the up-ward direction. Sometimes the race of the interviewer may affect the answers of respondents. This is es-pecially true if the questions asked are about race relations. The answers given by respondents may differ depending on the race of the interviewer."

The mistake that occurs when participants don't reveal their particular accurate viewpoints on a subject. They might misconstrue the problem, are not able to realize their own true views, sit, or maybe attempt to promote themselves in a beneficial gentle. Answer mistake is a particular difficulty when participants don't know the problem, by way of example, when they are inquired about intentions to order a new product. Intended for ideas on the way to minimize result problem, observe Sudman as well as Bradburn (early in the eightys).
