ABSTRACT
Recent evidence suggests that high rates of nonresponse in survey research do not necessarily result in response bias An example is presented in which differential response patterns in a longitudinal study are shown to result in subsamples that are similar both on demographic factors and on a major variable of interest Suggestions are offered regarding the need and utility of relativistic standards for assessing response rates.
