How to Increase Response Rates for Surveys--Well, Can You?
Abstract: How to increase response rates for surveys – Well can you?
In an effective quality cycle, one way organizations track their performance is by gathering stakeholder feedback. Such information is often analyzed to view strengths and weakness. However, for any feedback data to be of value and considered important for ‘closing the loop’ response rates should be sufficiently high so that there is confidence in any analytic outcomes of the findings.
This session describes some of the factors that need to be considered to achieve reasonable response rates.
