Abstract This report was written to act as a guide for agencies interested in developing emission inventory mail-out questionnaires. It addresses both the physical and psychological constraints on questionnaire design. The information provided is based on the knowledge of agencies and individuals that have experience in the art of questionnaire design. The first section discusses the choice of mail-out questionnaires over other information-gathering methods. The second section describes the individual elements of a mail-out questionnaire - the cover letter, the instructions and the questions - and what should be included in each. The third section considers design considerations for maximizing the return rate and the accuracy. Formulation of appropriate questions is also addressed. The formatting of a questionnaire for computer input and the use of a computer's capabilities are described in Section 4. Follow-up procedures are discussed in Section 5. Appendices include sample questionnaire elements.
