Starting next month, Survey Practice will have an “Ask the Experts” column. Please submit questions related to survey research and public opinion polling methods, processes, or procedures to the editor. I will select an interesting question and ask 2–3 experts to give relatively short answers to the questions.
Some example questions:
- What are good quality control procedures in postal mailing assembly?
- What’s better: a four- or five-point scale? (the question I get most often)
- How are participants tracked in panel studies?
- What’s a good question to measure political ideology?
