Dr. Chamard interviewed for New York Times blog The Upshot about surveys in Alaska
The blog post mentions low response rates (which are a problem everywhere), and Alaska's small population which compounds the problems of low response rates. Dr. Chamard commented that in addition to these issues, residential transiency - people moving in and out of state - makes it a challenge to compile a sample of sufficient size to yield reliable data.
