Effects of Population Type on Mail Survey Response Rates and on the Efficacy of Response Enhancers.
Green, Kathy E.; And Others
Experimental studies of response rates to mail surveys were reviewed and differences in response by population type were described. Cases were selected for review if they were experimental studies that manipulated a response enhancement factor. Results suggest significant differences in typical response rates for different populations. Higher response rates may be expected from surveys of customers and educators than from surveys of the general population. Results suggest few significant differences in effects of experimental treatment by population type, a result possibly due to limited sample sizes and thus low power for such analyses. One appendix lists the 22 studies reviewed, and the other presents treatment definitions and representations. (Contains 4 tables and 12 references.) (Author/SLD)
