Mail Survey Premiums and Response Bias
Preview not available

Abstract

Does the inclusion of a premium in a mail survey not only increase the response rate, but also bias the responses? An analysis comparing respondents who were sent a premium with those who were not reveals little to suggest that such a systematic bias results from inclusion of a premium with a mail survey. Certain previously cited biases were not found significant in this study.
