Did you know that you can run incidence checks within Toluna Start? An incidence check is the rate of occurrence of a stated event within a given population and usually requires a quick, one-question survey. For example, You might run a one-question survey to see the incidence of pickup truck owners in the USA.
Here a few reasons why running an incidence check with Toluna Start can be helpful:
Get a read on your audience before running a larger study. Running an incidence check will get you a read on important information you’ll need for a larger survey. For example, if you’re running a larger study and know you need 500 completed interviews, an incidence check allows you to know that you’ll have about 50% screenouts before launching the actual study. Once you run the larger study, you can appropriately sample for this, rather than guessing and having to add more samples later.
Save time and money. Fielding an incidence check can save time and money by providing valuable insights when dealing with certain respondent criteria and/or low incidence samples. In the case of pickup truck owners, you will save money by eliminating the need to oversample when it comes time to launch the actual study. You will also be able to determine how niche or prevalent your audience is among your target population.
Reveal attitudes and behaviors: Incidence checks can boost a study by revealing attitudes and behaviors that warrant additional analysis, which may not have been considered prior. Toluna Start has a real-time reporting dashboard that shows you demographic information. In the example of pickup truck owners, you can view your data by gender to see that males are more prevalent than females in this audience, or even analyze by region. This detailed information may positively impact how you want to sample within your actual study.
Unmatched speed. Toluna Start is capable of obtaining up to 2,000 respondents in 24 hours or with our panel of Toluna Influencers. As mentioned in the previous point, the data is shown in real-time within the reporting dashboard and can be viewed from anywhere on any device. Incidence check surveys can be done very quickly which is helpful if you wish to launch the larger study on a tight deadline.
