Can We Count on You? Assessing Reliability and Validity of Panels Around the World


Results from Maru/Blue's structured assessment of 30 survey panels in 14 countries

Your opinion can be valid, and your friends may be reliable. But in the world of sample, reliability and validity are the difference between research that informs and surveys that mislead.

Maru/Blue measured the test-retest reliability and criterion validity of 30 panels in 14 countries. The result is a 14-nation whirlwind tour of how research can go terribly wrong and how it can be refreshingly right.

The lessons learned along the way reveal a great deal about the nature of sample in a wide range of markets around the world.
