Overview

A crucial resource for increasing response rates and obtaining high-quality feedback from mail, electronic, and other surveys

Don Dillman's Mail and Internet Surveys, Second Edition has been the definitive guide for creating and conducting successful surveys using both traditional and new media channels. Now, this special 2007 Update of the classic text features major additions covering the latest developments in online survey design and administration.

Like its predecessor, this resource lays out a complete, start-to-finish guide for determining the needs of a given survey, designing it, and effectively administering it. Drawing on social science, statistics, and proven best practices, Dillman's text discusses surveys for a variety of purposes, audiences, and situations.

New and updated material covers both the principles behind and directions for how to:

  • Conduct Web surveys
  • Visually design questionnaires
  • Use paper mailed surveys

As insightful and practical as its classic original, Mail and Internet Surveys, Second Edition, 2007 Update is a crucial resource for any researcher seeking to increase response rates and obtain high-quality feedback from mail, electronic, and other self-administered surveys.

    Excellent step by step guide for high return mail surveys

    As a sociologist doing marketing research, I should keep Prof. Dillman's work secret. He provides specific techniques to conduct high return (30 to 45%) mail surveys. He also has guidelines on Internet surveys. With the declining cooperation rates on telephone surveys and increasing cost of phone surveys, there is a revival of mail surveys (the favorite choice of respondents). Dillman's methods were used in the 2010 US census with excellent results.
