How This Survey Is Done
The 2001 BodyShop Business Industry Profile was conducted by Babcox Research, a division of Babcox, and executed via a nationwide mail program to 5,000 body shops. The survey consisted of five two-page questionnaires, and each questionnaire was sent to a subsample of 1,000 BodyShop Business readers. Readers were chosen through a systematic sampling procedure in which every “nth” name was selected from a BodyShop Business subscription list. The sample was adjusted to provide geographic representation. Surveys were mailed on March 9, 2001, and Babcox Research received 630 completed questionnaires for an effective return rate of 12.8 percent.
