A survey is a way of collecting important information, facts, data or opinions for the purpose of analyzing (dictionary reference.com). The most common methods of surveys are telephone, questionnaires, and personal interview surveys. Telephone surveys are the least expensive of the three surveys. People are more apt to answer questions to the survey honestly since there is no face to face contact. Questionnaires are generally in paper form which requires the client to fill out. This method of survey can be mailed out and returned, however, people fill them out at their own convenience so they survey may or may not get sent back, or received too late ( www.socialresearchmehods.net ). Personal interviews are face to face and can be costly to the company, and take time ( www.stat.wmich.ed ). During the face- to- face interview, the client’s reaction can be observed. The client may be hesitant to answer questions honestly, and feel like their time is being invaded.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
