    over the same time period for which/during which

    In the sentence below is "for which" interchangeable with "during which" or would it be incorrect to make that change?

    He examined survey data over the same time period for which the actual data were collected.

    Re: over the same time period for which/during which

    No.

    In the original sentence, the time period is the period being studied. If you use 'during', the time period is the period of the collection. These are not necessarily the same.
