Differences from one survey to the next (or one survey vendor to next) in handling technical issues related to the final disposition codes that feed into the one of several response rate
formulas (American Association for Public Opinion Research [AAPOR] or Council of American Survey Research Organizations) are partially responsible for the nonreliable nature of response rates
Recommendation: To enhance credibility of the response rate
for determining cost and planning for future census activities, to inform assumptions underlying the 2020 response rate
estimate, and to improve the planning and transparency of the Bureau's research and testing, the Secretary of Commerce should direct the Bureau to establish procedures for developing the 2020 response rate
estimate, including documenting the data sources supporting the estimate's components and decisions that are made in establishing the components and analyzing 2010 data to assess the reasonableness of assumptions used in applying the national estimate's components to the local census offices-type (LCO) estimates.
We conclude that when planning an audit with elements of self-reporting, a high response rate
should not be expected, even for a brief targeted audit.
A meta analysis of response rates
in Web or Internet-based surveys.
Proportions were calculated by dividing the response rate
in each prefeeding session by the mean response rate
from the six sessions that preceded that probe.
Second, authors need to ensure that they understand the response rate
components and related methodological issues, and obtain the appropriate technical consultation when necessary.
00 prepaid yielded a statistically significant increase in response rate
over a no-incentive control condition.
They should be constantly testing marginal lists to see if they can be made to pay off, a process that invariably does somewhat depress overall response rates
paper-based survey, telephone interviews) maybe critical to maximizing the response rate

Extensive clinical studies of ZEVALIN have confirmed high response rates
and durable responses in patients with relapsed, refractory follicular or transformed B-cell NHL.
21) Tire high complete response rate
of 86% in this trial is noteworthy.
