Abstract:

The present concern over the number, quality, and appropriateness of surveys being used to collect research data, especially for policy analysis, has led to questions concerning the need for, and alternatives to, survey methodologies. This paper presents an analysis of the drawbacks to the use of surveys in economic research and suggestions for ways they may be more profitably incorporated in future research. Examples of such innovative strategies from the economic research area are discussed. Author
