What Are The Types Of Survey?

1 Answer

  1. Basically there are two types of survey, or we can say they are classified into two broad categories.
    First category is on the basis of instrumentation, which can be again done in two ways, namely, questionnaire and interview. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages like, interview is more personal but is time consuming, while questionnaire is less time consuming but requires the other person to be literate.
    Second category is on the basis of span of time used to conduct the survey. It comprised of cross-sectional surveys and longitudinal surveys. Collecting information from the respondents at a single period in time uses the cross-sectional type of survey, while when the researcher attempts to gather information over a period of time or from one point in time up to another, he is doing a longitudinal survey.
