Data Is Much More Reliable

Data from on-line surveys are much more reliable
than that of phone, postal mail or intercept
surveys.  Why?  Call it human error and interviewer
bias.  Phone surveys are typically conducted by
part-time workers who receive low hourly wages
with minimal training.  Through poor and neglectful
communication, data input errors are introduced.  
Also the data is key-punched by someone other
than the respondent.  The respondent has no way
of knowing if the phone interviewer is hearing their
responses accurately and/or is even key punching
the response accurately.  With postal mail,
responses have to keyed-in from sometimes
illegible handwriting, not to mention key-punch
errors made by the key-puncher.

With paper surveys, respondents typically skip around the survey form  and leave much vital
information blank.   On the other hand, the on-line survey respondent will see each question on their
screen and then key strokes their own answers, with the ability to catch and correct their own
mistakes.  The survey can be programmed to require the respondent to answer all questions so
there are no gaping holes in your data.  The data entered by the respondent is downloaded and
automatically tablulated.....no interviewer bias, no translation errors and no data entry errors by
third parties.
