New data are presented for understanding the problem of ‘professional respondents’ in opt-in Internet survey panels. Estimates of panel overlap, frequency of survey-taking, and characteristics of data collected from such respondents are presented. These data do not suffer from the problems of previous analyses (such as self-reporting and possibly unrepresentative samples of panelists), and suggest alternative approaches for the identification and treatment of such respondents.
