Title Survey Respondent Incentives: Research and Practice
Year 2008
Access date 05.05.2009

Incentive payments to survey respondents have been used extensively for many years, and considerable research evidence supports their eff ectiveness in improving cooperation and the speed and quality of response. It has become increasingly difficult to achieve high response in many key surveys, and the use of incentives has become increasingly widespread. In March 2008, a one day seminar on survey respondent incentives brought together survey practitioners and methodologists to exchange views and practices related to providing incentives to survey respondents to improve response rates. This invited panel of survey researchers consists of key participants in the seminar who will consolidate and synthesize the main issues and key themes that emerged from the seminar and off er their perspectives on current and best practices and suggest future directions for implementation and research.
