Phone survey response rate analysis

Here is an interesting summary of research from the Pew Center about phone survey responses. Some of the highlights:

  • Phone survey response rates hover around 9%, and this has been a stable rate for several years.
  • People who answer phone surveys are more likely than average to be civically and politically engaged.
  • “Low response rate phone polls still conform closely to high response rate in person surveys on measures of political and religious identification.”
  • Pew Center surveys are awesome (says the Pew Center) (but I tend to agree).
