Abstract

Surveys conveniently acquire and summarize valuable information from a target population. The specific aims, design, target sample, mode of distribution, data analysis, and inherent limitations of the survey methodology should be carefully considered to maximize the validity of the results. This review provides guidance on the methods and standards necessary to complete sound survey science.
