Abstract While traditional survey literature has addressed three possible (non-)response patterns (unit nonresponse, item nonresponse, and complete response), Web surveys can capture data about a respondent's answering process, enabling researchers to attain more fine-grained information about individual reactions to such surveys. Based on this information, at least seven (non-)response patterns can be distinguished. This paper describes these seven patterns in a typology of (non-)response. Finally, theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
