Frontline Supervisor Survey Data Collection Report. Providers

The Survey Research Center was able to identify the population of supervisors at almost all providers. Provider response rates to the Supervisor Identification Instrument that identified the population were high. Sixty-two out of 65 providers returned the identification instrument at Time 1, and 120 out of 124 providers returned the identification instrument at Time 2 (Table 1). Thus, the Supervisor Survey sample is nested in 62 providers in Time 1 and 120 providers in Time 2. The overall response rates were 95 percent and 97 percent in Time 1 and Time 2, respectively. The vast majority of identified supervisors performed either primary supervisory responsibilities or a combination of primary and secondary responsibilities; only about 3 percent qualified solely on the performance of secondary responsibilities.

At Time 2 there was some variation by state with Iowa, North Carolina, and Oregon having provider response rates of 100 percent, followed by Pennsylvania at 94 percent, and Vermont at 86 percent.

Provider response rates differed little by provider type at Time 1, with all provider types having a 95 percent or 96 percent response rate (Table 2). Response rates differed more at Time 2, with skilled nursing facilities having the highest response rate (100 percent) followed by assisted living facilities (97 percent), home care agencies (94 percent), and adult day service providers (88 percent).
