Title Correlates of early and late responses to surveys in an online panel
Year 2015
Access date 15.07.2015

Keeping the survey open for completion if the net amount a researcher needs for his/her studies is reached involves extra costs in terms of incentives and other processing costs. Some respondents prefer to complete surveys immediately after the invitation is sent out, while others wait until right before the closing time of the survey. Some preliminary results show that early and late responders are different in terms of sociodemographics and personality. We expect that if the variables of interest for the researcher is correlated with characteristics of timing of response this may have an impact on the outcomes.
