For all types of surveys it is critical to establish a mechanism for tracking the contacts with each member of the sample and recording the final disposition or status of each member of the sample. A unique identification number is assigned to each sample unit. Then in an electronic database of some sort, all information about that sample unit is input. A careful tracking of survey contacts is critical for managing survey implementation tasks. For instance, in a mail survey, tracking the surveys that are not deliverable from an advance mailing and/or initial survey mailing allows the survey manager to reduce postage and handling costs in follow-up mailings.
For example, open space is a positive good for some individuals but considered a negative by individuals who would rather see the land used for development. In such a case, we do not know how results might be affected if we have more high income individuals in the response population than in the actual population. As we mentioned, the higher the response rate, the less likely it is that nonresponse error will be substantial. There are many factors that can influence response rates. One of the major influences is the salience of the survey topic to the sample.
Can the goods or services described in the survey be linked to the policy or hypothesis you want to evaluate? Instrument design work, including focus groups and pretests, will help determine if it is theoretically possible to conduct the survey. Discussions with experts in the field or researchers who have attempted surveys on the same topic can also help you determine whether your project is feasible. SC studies have many advantages compared to other methods of collecting nonmarket valuation data, but they are not the right format for every topic.
