    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study assessed efforts to increase response rates to a mailed physician survey and examined whether, as a result, nonresponse bias was reduced.

    Methods

    Randomly selected physicians and geneticists were mailed a questionnaire concerning genetics knowledge and attitudes.

    In the final but not the pilot survey, a $25 incentive and intensive follow-up were used to increase the response rate.

    Results

    The response rate from physicians in the final survey was 64.8% (n=1140), compared with 19.6% in the pilot test (n=69).
