The current paper deals with the issue of the detection of selective nonresponse in discrete-time, multi-wave panel studies. If groups in a population differ with respect to the chances that they will be (and remain) in a longitudinal sample, we speak of selective nonresponse. Ultimately, selective nonresponse may lead to a sample that is very different from the target population. We discuss ways to detect and quantify the amount of selectiveness by means of discrete-time Markov models. Then we proceed by addressing how a researcher may gain understanding of how to solve the problems caused by selective nonresponse, and the degree to which these solutions will be effective, by means of data on the nonresponse during a three-wave panel study involving 2800 young Dutch adults.
