31/08/10 Decent Response to Pilot Survey
Of the 404 surveys send out in June we have received back, to date, a total of 78 completed questionnaires (75 by freepost return and 3 completed on-line). Considering the pilot questionnaire was sent out with no accompanying publicity or reminder letters etc., a 19.3% response rate represents a respectable figure.

01/03/11 Final Few Survey Responses Trickle In
Whilst the majority of completed surveys were returned to us before Christmas, we continued to receive a few stragglers every now and then through out January and February. This brought our final total of fully completed returned surveys to 1628 (25.7%), which, considering the length and detail of the survey, represents very decent response rate, and a significant improvement on the pilot survey.
