Ask the Experts

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?
