Freeman, E. Nakamura, and A. Pyman man survey is important, since the longest established of the e- recruiting firms were founded in 1995. When the results of this survey are considered alongside the growth of the e- recruiting industry, some interesting tentative conclusions emerge. Freeman used the English language Google AdWords and AdBrite international advertising options to invite the job- seekers of the world to fill out his job search survey. The ads were shown to Internet users entering the key word “job search” and also on what the advertising agencies describe as “content sites,” which are simply other Internet sites that the advertising agency personnel deemed likely to generate hits on the ad given the text of the ad itself.
9 (N ϭ 1,717) (57) (281) (370) (231) (74) (216) (294) (194) Notes: The full data set consists of the responses in the master file for all those who answered questions Q20 (age) and Q21 (sex). Thus it includes the 114 survey takers who did not answer the question about what nation they were currently living in. The numbers in parentheses are sample sizes that apply for the percentage figures shown. the United States and Canada and the United Kingdom and other higher income nations.

6, the Freeman survey pickup was much higher in lower wage countries in Asia and also Africa than in countries like 28. The Freeman survey is long and asks questions that make it unlikely that any two individuals would have identical responses on all questions. From an analysis perspective, the elimination of completed duplicate surveys that provide correct information would be less harmful than the retention of bogus completed surveys. Thus we eliminated all duplicate submissions. Also, multiple bogus entries would almost surely have diﬀerent age and sex distributions than good data, and would tend to cause aberrations in the response patterns for some of the survey questions.
