I'm interested in writing an article about methods for consumer surveys - or, mainly the methology behind telephone interviews for doing such surveys. I wonder were this article should belong - I've had a little problem with the exact meaning of the words 'interview' and 'survey' in english language (and in Wikipedia), considering that 'survey' seems to have something to do with geology (among other things), while the article 'interview' seems to focus entirely on interviews for magazines, tv, radio and such.

I'm also considering that the article I'm thinking about would fall under the category of 'statistical methology' or something like that. Any help would be appreciated. I've looked around and have seen nothing like the kind I would write, although that presents another problem: I would be in trouble to find decent references, tho I would be glad to have my article reviewed by other professionals. I'm not trying to publish anything original, it's just that finding good references has been difficult. I guess I could easily cover about 30-50% of my material with references, if that's good enough.

That would be my first article, by the way. So bare with me if my questions seem stoopid.

I think what you are talking about is a subset of marketing research. - SimonP 21:33, Mar 30, 2005 (UTC)

statistical survey[edit]

.. is the thing I was looking for. It seemed difficult to find at first, but after 2 months, it's there :) I just love wikipedia, but I wish people would be more bold in adding links that are not that close to the subject. I've been often surprised to see a related topic that can't be linked with fewer than 4..5 pages. There's excess of links to general topics tho. thats all for today folks

types of interviews[edit]

article does not specify types of interviews, such as structured, semi-structured, and open... etc Towsonu2003 20:49, 11 October 2006 (UTC)

proper attire for interviews[edit]

article does not discuss or link to a site on how to dress for an interview. I suggest How to Dress for an Interview, any input?

A personal page doesn't meet WP:Reliable sources guidelines. OhNoitsJamie Talk 01:25, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

This is a how-to guide[edit]

A large part of this article reads like a how-to guide. I don't think that's how WP articles are supposed to read. -- UKoch (talk) 15:38, 30 July 2013 (UTC)


I have boldly split this article into two: it seemed to me a mish-mash of content, mostly on interviews in qualitative research, with some on interviews in journalism. So I've created Interview (journalism) for the latter content and moved this article to Interview (research), with changes then made to Interview (disambiguation). Hope everyone thinks this is a good idea! Bondegezou (talk) 12:22, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Please be aware that if you make a split like this, you must fix all incoming links. bd2412 T 14:34, 2 February 2015 (UTC)
