To the Editor: Dr Baker and colleagues1 noted the lack of consistency in reporting of sample selection and survey nonresponse in other studies of Internet use. In contrast, they described their own sample as a "large, well-defined, representative sample of the US population." Nonetheless, their study raises important questions about how survey response rates should be reported.
