On each survey for other target groups, AG would ask if the respondent has registered a domain name in a new gTLD and if so if they would be willing to take another short survey (i.e., the actual registrant survey). AG has added a question for the respondent to indicate his/her original target group for the Sub Team/WG to evaluate the results.
Response rate: The desired response rate is 50 responses from actual registrants, and 150 responses from potential registrants
