Abstract Share this page

In this chapter, I review some of the topics in the study of autobiographical memory that appear to be the most relevant for the area of survey research: (a) types of autobiographical memory, (b) types of data used in memory research, (c) information in personal memory, (d) forgetting in autobiographical memory, (e) event characteristics related to memory, and (f) the accuracy of autobiographical memory. For each topic, I first discuss the basic research from the area of autobiographical memory and then make a few comments about the relevance of the research for the area of survey research. My comments about survey research should be taken with a grain of salt, since I have no expertise in this area.
