Onlineumfragen haben für die sozialwissenschaftliche Forschung in den vergangen Jahren zunehmend an Bedeutung gewonnen, nicht zuletzt wegen der Möglichkeit, viele Personen innerhalb kurzer Zeit kosteneffizient befragen zu können. Im Vergleich zu interviewer-administrierten Befragungen haben Onlineinterviews aufgrund der selbst-administrierten Befragung einen geringeren Messfehler (Kreuter et al. 2008). Hauptkritikpunkt bei Onlineumfragen ist die Repräsentativität dieser Studien im Hinblick auf die Allgemeinbevölkerung.
