A class of models known as randomized response designs has been shown to reduce survey response bias to incriminating questions by assuring respondent confidentiality. The purpose of this presentation is to show the useful application of this survey approach and also to provide a comprehensive and accessible bibliography of the relevant literature. A randomized response survey incorporating the Greenberg-Morton model was implemented in this study to attempt to derive estimates of shell collecting permit noncompliance in the southern region of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. It was estimated that noncompliance with the requirement to obtain the prescribed permit was low whereas, given that a permit had been obtained, noncompliance with specific permit conditions was estimated to be high.
