Physician Responses to Multiple Questionnaire Mailings.
Sobal, Jeffery; And Others
Evaluation Review, v14 n6 p711-22 Dec 1990
Three questionnaire mailings to 1,535 physicians that produced 977 responses were analyzed. The only variable significantly different across the mailings was medical specialty. This finding indicates that the more homogeneous the group the greater the response rate. Issues of nonresponse bias and insufficient sample size are discussed. (TJH)
