A new virtual issue of the International Journal of Social Research Methodology, with all articles free to access until November 2016. Read it in full here.
Survey non-response represents a major challenge to data analyses. It results in smaller samples, lower statistical power, incomplete histories in a longitudinal context, and more worryingly bias in sample composition. In this virtual issue, eight articles focusing on issues of survey response are republished.
Five articles explored the impact of survey practices on response, while the remaining three focused of the determinants of response and the consequences on sample representativeness. The eight articles cover longitudinal and cross-sectional surveys in addition to different survey modes such as postal, web, and face to face surveys.
