Mail Surveys And Non-Response Bias: Report On A N.S.W. Mail Survey


  • Freebairn, John W.


All farmers in one stratum of a wheat storage survey who failed to answer a mail questionnaire were personally interviewed. Answers obtained from the mail respondents and from non-respondents are compared to assess the extent of non-response bias. Five suggestions for planning "high return" mail surveys are discussed.
