Abstract

This paper focuses on the effects of material incentives in face-to-face surveys. We discuss the  experience of the ESS Project in Poland. We will draw on the methodology research conducted in connection with the ESS to show how incentives have worked in Poland, i.e. how the incentives used to date have performed. Polish respondents are divided in their opinions regarding the use of incentives in surveys. This attitude is driven by two types of motivations. Some comments indicate that participation in surveys is seen as a kind of ‘duty to the public’, which should not entail any reward. Other opinions collected in our studies indicate that at least some respondents in Poland expect some kind of reward in connection with their participation in a survey.
