      Description:

      Web surveys are generally connected with low response rates. Common suggestions in textbooks on Web survey research highlight the importance of the welcome screen in encouraging respondents to take part. The importance of this screen has been empirically proven in research, showing that most respondents breakoff at the welcome screen. However, there has been little research on the effect of the design of this screen on the level of the breakoff rate. In a study conducted at the University of Konstanz, three experimental treatments were added to a survey of the first-year student population (2,629 students) to assess the impact of different design features of this screen on the breakoff rates. The methodological experiments included varying the background color of the welcome screen, varying the promised task duration on this first screen, and varying the length of the information provided on the welcome screen explaining the privacy rights of the respondents. The analyses show that the longer stated length and the more attention given to explaining privacy rights on the welcome screen, the fewer respondents started and completed the survey. However, the use of a different background color does not result in the expected significant difference.

      Description:

      In this paper we describe a methodology for combining a convenience sample with a probability sample in order to produce an estimator with a smaller mean squared error (MSE) than estimators based on only the probability sample. We then explore the properties of the resulting composite estimator, a linear combination of the convenience and probability sample estimators with weights that are a function of bias. We discuss the estimator's properties in the context of web-based convenience sampling. Our analysis demonstrates that the use of a convenience sample to supplement a probability sample for improvements in the MSE of estimation may be practical only under limited circumstances. First, the remaining bias of the estimator based on the convenience sample must be quite small, equivalent to no more than 0.1 of the outcome's population standard deviation. For a dichotomous outcome, this implies a bias of no more than five percentage points at 50 percent prevalence and no more than three percentage points at 10 percent prevalence. Second, the probability sample should contain at least 1,000-10,000 observations for adequate estimation of the bias of the convenience sample estimator. Third, it must be inexpensive and feasible to collect at least thousands (and probably tens of thousands) of web-based convenience observations. The conclusions about the limited usefulness of convenience samples with estimator bias of more than 0.1 standard deviations also apply to direct use of estimators based on that sample.

      Description:

      This article compares the performance and characteristics of fast-growing small- and mid-sized Canadian Internet service providers (ISPs) with those of their slower-growing counterparts. The study also examines the different strategies employed by the two groups as well as their differing perceptions of potential impediments to their growth.

      The main findings relate to the effects of the two groups' business strategies on their core business and diversification, revenues and expenses, broadband and narrowband services, subscriber base and customer retention rates, connection options and growth impediments.

      Description:

      This report describes the comments received as a result of the second round of the 2006 Census consultations. As with the previous 2006 Census consultation, this second round of consultations integrated discussions on the dissemination program, questionnaire content and census geography. However, the focus of this second round of consultations was placed on the 2001 Census of Population dissemination program and proposed directions for 2006 geography. Consultations were held from January to June 2004. Approximately 1,000 comments were captured through written submissions and the organization of over 40 meetings across Canada.

      This report describes users' feedback on dissemination and geography issues received through this second round of consultations. In addition to user's comments, web metrics information serves as a valuable tool when evaluating the accessibility of public good data tables. Therefore, page view counts have been integrated in this report.

      Some general planning assumptions that focus on the production and dissemination of 2006 Census products are also included in this report.
