Population specific interactions with mail survey response inducement techniques have long been suspected as a source of variation in the reported effectiveness of mail survey inducement methods. This study investigated such interactions by use of a 2 x 2 x 110 randomized block experimental design involving 23,350 survey subjects. Highly significant, as well as substantial interactions were found between population factors and manipulations of survey sponsorship and anonymity assurance. Income level, education level, population flux, and regional sponsor loyalties were specifically linked to interactive effects with the experimental manipulations.
