Despite some of the shortcomings of mail surveys, mail remains a popular mode. Breffle et al. (1999), for example, chose mail to conduct a SC survey to assess the natural resource damages resulting from releases of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the lower Fox River/Green Bay ecosystem in northeast Wisconsin. 2. Computer-Administered Surveys Use of computer-administered surveys has increased substantially in recent years due to the wide range of advantages they offer to survey researchers. Visual materials such as maps, charts, graphics, streaming video and auditory stimulus can be integrated into the survey.

Examples of nonprobability sampling could include using students in a class or recruiting subjects in a shopping mall. Nonprobability sampling is best suited for studies that do not require generalization from the survey sample to a broader population. Such samples are frequently used to investigate methodological questions such as how behaviors or responses vary under different treatments. The field of experimental economics largely relies on observations of behaviors using nonprobability samples.

Choice sets can be randomly or systematically generated as part of the study design. Inconsistent responses can also be checked by having respondents answer the question(s) again. A high degree of control is maintained over the presentation of questions and the order in which questions are answered. Computer-administered surveys may also dramatically reduce implementation expenses by avoiding interviewer time, postage, printing, data entry and/or mail handling expenses There are, however, potential drawbacks associated with computer-administered surveys.
