The Denbigh Suite, Grand Connaught Rooms, London
An AIMRI conference – Connaught Rooms, London, 23rd & 24th June 2016.
Call for Synopses.
Research results are entirely dependent upon the quality of the sample obtained and recently many concerns have been expressed about the accuracy of opinion polls in the UK and the US and sampling methods have been called into question.
So, what are your views of the quality of samples currently?
- Do you have you a case study that illustrates that quality sampling is alive and well? International studies are particularly welcome.
- Data Protection Issues:
- What are the latest developments?
- Are there different issues in different countries?
- Is data protection creating sample bias?
- What role can social media play in developing sample for research?
- What is the role of Mixed Mode methods and multi-channel samples?
- What’s the latest for B2B Research? How can the mobile best be used for data collection?
