Telephone surveys are a form of quantitative market research used to determine and predict attitudes, opinions and behaviors of a particular group based on specific sampling. The results from telephone surveys are traditionally designed to be representative of the population. In order to ensure that your results are representative, it is imperative to survey the right people and make sure that the sample size is sufficiently large.
