A phone survey is a research methodology where an interviewer administers a questionnaire to the respondent during a phone call reading it on a computer. CATI is the acronym of Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing.
The questionnaire is not just an interview guideline but it automatically leads the questionnaire flow and how these questions have to be formulated. The interviewer cannot edit the questionnaire script nor the single question: his role is that of an intermediary between the respondent and the questionnaire. Also, the interviewer can give explanations when questions are unclear to improve the response rate.
Mail surveys are postal service-delivered questionnaires that are distributed to specific population samples. Targeted respondents are requested to complete the questionnaires and return them by mail. To increase response rates, mail surveys often use reminder cards and/or reminder letters. An advantage of mail surveys for business is the relative cost-effectiveness (based on postal rates) of survey distribution and receipt. Low administration costs and the ability to reach broad geographic distributions are additional advantages. Disadvantages of mail survey methods are associated with their reliance on respondents being speakers of the language used in the questionnaire and having a suitable literacy level to participate in the study. There is also reliance on respondents to return questionnaires; more importantly, there is no way of knowing whether the person targeted is the person who completes the questionnaire.

Face-to-face surveying is a survey method that involves interviewers directly communicating with respondents face-to-face. This survey method allows for the investigation of complex issues as interviewers can give comprehensive explanations of questions, ask interviewees to expand on answers, and allows non-verbal cues such as body language to be identified.
Although this method of surveying was traditionally the most common method of conducting surveys, its use has decreased significantly over time. This is mainly due to the increase in the popularity of other cheaper and more convenient alternatives such as email surveys and other web survey methods. Additionally, due to the pandemic, the use of the face-to-face survey method declined even more due to public health and safety concerns.
