SCHEDULE

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
In the theory of sample surveys, schedule is synonymous with questionnaire.

Context:
A schedule occurs in the specialized sense of a group, or sequence, of questions designed to elicit information upon a subject. Usually, it is completed by an investigator on the basis of information supplied by the particular member of the population chosen for inclusion in the sample, but sometimes it is completed by that member him- or herself, as in postal enquiries.
