Professional Mail Surveys

When Paul Erdos started Erdos & Morgan in 1946, the best way to get usable information was the direct mail survey.  Dr. Erdos devoted much of his career to understanding how to:

  • Design effective mail survey instruments
  • Reach and recruit the right audiences
  • Ensure statistically significant response rates

Dr. Erdos took copious notes and eventually compiled everything he had learned into a book, Professional Mail Surveys, originally published in 1970, revised in 1983 and reissued in 1990.  This book is still the definitive guidebook on the subject.
