We send out email invitations for online surveys for all countries. For some countries, survey panel members can also login and take online surveys everyday for money.
We use the information from the completed survey panel member registration form (such as your gender, age, interest in particular products, services, geographic location, type of employment, etc.) and the client's survey sample criteria to randomly select participants (survey panel members) for every paid online survey or e-research study.
In order to research opinions people have, how they behave, or what their social status is, one usually must complete the six activities listed with short narrative below. Principally, there are two types of online social, market research and economic studies. Online surveys can be used to estimate how some group of people with certain characteristics, like age, gender, income, location, or the like think and behave. This type of research uses online survey samples and make some kind of estimate for the online population or those who are not online and is called quantitative research (uses quantities, like amount of money, education, or the like). The other type of research study is called qualitative study because it seeks to understand some social, consumer or other economic activity or phenomena. It is associated with online interviews (surveys with many branches) online focus groups, focus groups, personal histories, and uses conversational information rather than collects numerical information. The six activities necessary to complete quantitative survey research are:
- Research Design – Research Design is the process of developing ideas, theories, concepts and and their operationalization in terms of testable hypotheses.
- Sampling – Sampling is the process of selecting participants (respondents or interviewees) who may fit some criteria (for example age, gender, income, state or town, have certain health problems, or use mobile phones). In order to estimate what the general population with the similar characteristics might do, think, buy, or hold what opinion, random sampling provides a method to make these estimates. For online general population the same survey sampling procedure applies.
- Questionnaire – A questionnaire (online web survey or paper) provides the researcher with a method to collect numerical information on topics of interest. Usually, some introduction is provided so the respondent understands what the questionnaire is about and can make a decision whether they are competent to answer the questions that will be asked. Some studies, which use a questionnaire, are very short. Some can last an hour or more. Typically, online questionnaires seldom take more that 5 to 30 minutes to complete.
- Data Collection – Data collection is the method of retrieval of the information. Online surveys usually rely on emailing panel members an invitation to participate in the survey (evite) that explains the purpose of the survey. As the member is answering the questions, the questions are being recorded at the website. Once the survey is closed, the researcher can download the data and begin data analysis.
- Data Analysis – In order to understand, how and what the data collected relate to the theories, concepts, and hypotheses, the researcher must analyze the data to make comparisons and estimates from the data collected. The best procedure is to “run frequencies” first to find out whether the data are skewed, grouped, or otherwise fail to fit the normal curve assumption or many statistical tests. An example of a frequency is the number of persons for each age starting with the lowest age to the highest age. If the frequency data fit the normal curve, for example using a histogram, then statistics relying on the normal curve can be used. Otherwise, other methods, principally Chi-square can be used to estimate whether the data from the survey can be used to estimate the population from which the sample was taken.
- Reporting – Once a researcher completes the analyses, a report is written to explain, interpret, and evaluate the entire study. If others unacquainted with the study are to use the study results, a factual, concise, and understandable report should be written. For more information see click here for books on this topic.
For every study the survey sample (the selected participants) is a very important for representation of the survey population and overall success sometimes measured in the survey completion rate. In general, higher completion rates give more confidence in the survey results. Therefore, anytime we send you an email invitation, please try to take the survey

We offer online survey and e-research services for clients who ask us to provide participants with particular characteristics they are interested in, such as gender, age, etc. Since Ethical Research uses random sampling for selection of participants, we cannot predict when you will be asked to fill out an online web survey or participate in other types of e-research.
