To determine whether there is a difference in response rate from a survey given via e-mail or the Web, 600 professional health educators were divided into two groups. Three hundred received an e-mail survey and 300 were sent an e-mail asking them to go to a Web page to complete a survey. No statistically significant differences were found in the response rate between the two groups. The Web survey had a 48% response rate whereas the e-mail survey had a 43% response rate. The Web and e-mail can yield similar results when collecting data, and both may have unique advantages.
