Methodology

The Ohio Survey of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Issues is a biennial mail survey of a general population of Ohioans conducted since 2002. The mail survey methodology conforms to Dillman's tailored design method. A response rate greater than 56% was achieved in both 2002 and 2004. In addition, a mail survey paralleling the 2004 statewide survey was conducted in early 2005, soliciting information from a sample of motivated food consumers associated with a food co-op and a sustainable lifestyle/voluntary simplicity organization.
