This methodological note analyzes how the cumulative response rate following a probability based recruitment effort carried out in November 2012 develop over time. The conclusions are that the cumulative response rate in most cases is halved after five consecutive steps of the Citizen Panel regardless of the amount of initial effort used in the recruitment, of the initial recruitment rate, and of the age of the respondents. Subsequently though, the cumulative response rate flattens out in coming waves of the panel and stops diminishing at the same rate.
