“First I would say that CSRS is highly professional. This includes meticulously evaluating various options for the research along with their associated costs. Interviewer training and supervision are also a big part of their professionalism. A third aspect of CSRS professionalism is the quality of the data I have received. Verbatim responses were detailed; the SPSS file faithfully adhered to the questionnaire. The sample disposition data were comprehensive.
CSRS in general, and Ken Gross particular, is very much a research partner. The various studies I have worked on with CSRS began with creative discussions about sampling alternatives and measurement issues. In my experience it has been very common for CSRS to anticipate situations and response that never occurred to me.”
