- The effect of two lottery-style incentives on response rates to postal questionnaires in a prospective cohort study in preschool children at high risk of asthma: a randomized trial. van der Mark, Lonneke B.; van Wonderen, Karina E.; Mohrs, Jacob; Bindels, Patrick J. E.; Puhan, Milo A.; ter Riet, Gerben // BMC Medical Research Methodology;2012, Vol. 12 Issue 1, p186
Background: In research with long-term follow-up and repeated measurements, quick and complete response to questionnaires helps ensure a study's validity, precision and efficiency. Evidence on the effect of non-monetary incentives on response rates in observational longitudinal research is...
