Some tips to launch your first survey

Launching a survey has always a reason behind, but it’s different if those survey results should serve as general market overview or important source of data for future investments or should set the direction of any business. Upon the needs, you have to decide the accuracy of the survey.


The accuracy of the survey is defined by three parameters: population size, confidence level and margin of error.


1- Population size: How many people fit your demographic? How many runners are in Germany or in Japan? according to the global statistics, you can consider that a 20% of the population in certain country runs at least once per week. Therefore, your population size in Germany is around 16million and in Japan around 25 million. If you are interested in Japanese runners age 25-54 years your sample size will be approximately 9,5 million (20% of 47,73 million).

2- Confidence level (%): This number is expressed as a percentage and represents how often the true percentage of the population who would pick an answer lies within the confidence interval. A 90% confidence level means you can be 90% certain about result of your survey. Most commonly used confidence level by researches is 95%.

3- Margin of error (Confidence Interval) (%): This number represents plus-or-minus figure usually expressing results of a survey. As example if you use margin of error of 5% and 30% of sample picks an answer you can be “sure” that if you had asked the question of the entire relevant population, between 25% (30-5) and 35% (30+5) would have picked that answer. When you put these two last parameters together (confidence level and margin error) you can say that you are 95% sure, that percentage of population in between 25% and 35% would pick certain answer.


How many respondents do you need? How to calculate the sample size?

The number of respondents is called sample size. It means that this sample represents your chosen demographics and accuracy of the survey. As example of widely used research standard for population size over 1 million, confidence level 95% and margin of error 5% - 384 responses are the right number. We would like to give you a couple of hints on how to calculate your sample size. The following chart should give you an overview of the accuracy of your Runister survey:

Also, if you solve the following equation using your survey-specific numbers. The answer you arrive at should be your necessary survey size.


SS = [z2 * p(1-p)] / e2 / 1 + [z2 * p(1-p)] / e2 * N]


Please bear in mind that:

SS=sample size

N= population size

e=margin error (should be used in decimal format)

z=z-score (should be selected from the confidence list below)

p= standard of deviation (regularly 0,5)



80% confidence => 1.28 z-score

85% confidence => 1.44 z-score

90% confidence => 1.65 z-score

95% confidence => 1.96 z-score

99% confidence => 2.58 z-score
