Member Survey Results

In May of 2010 an online survey was circulated to all individual members of The Textile Institute. The aim of this primary research project was to gather both qualitative and quantitative data on members views of all aspects of the current package offered. It is our intent to conduct a new survey in the near future.

In total the survey was fully completed by 391 members, out of a possible 2505 individual members at the time the survey was issued, giving it a response rate of 15.6%. This is a high response rate and it is important to note as most companies will only act on information gathered from primary research if the sample size is over 10%.

This report goes through each section of membership and explains the findings from the survey. It then goes on to identify member profiles, key findings and finally concludes with recommendations based on the findings of the survey. Click HERE to read the full report in pdf format.
