Summary: For the collection of data related to sensitive issues, randomized response (RR) techniques have been proposed. RR techniques provide more reliable data, protect respondents’ confidentiality, and avoid an unacceptable rate of nonresponses. In optional RR, a section of people, those who feel that the subject of enquiry is not confidential enough and wish to provide direct response spontaneously, are given an option to provide direct responses. In this chapter, we have reviewed some important optional RR techniques available in the literature.
