Raising Taxes to Pay for a New Expressway

APSTAT-1NUJG4

The local highway commission draws a random sample of 150 adults from the driver's license database to ask, "Would you support raising taxes 1% to pay for a new 10 mile expressway?"

This survey will most likely suffer from

A

Response bias because the wording of the question is misleading.

B

Response bias because there are not enough people in the sample.

C

Undercoverage bias because taxpayers who don't have a driver's license won't be able to contribute their opinions.

D

Undercoverage bias because there aren't enough people in the sample.

E

Voluntary response bias because only those who feel strongly on the issue will choose to participate in the survey.
