The increasing use of surveys, even in circumstances that are very different from each other, creates a problem of generalization: is this research method truly 'neutral' in how and what it searches for? A series of reflections on surveys in two fields as diverse as clinical epidemiology and market research shows the difference in the quality of relationship with the interviews, the kind of 'use' it is put too, and the possible consequences that the participation/exclusion of subjects can have with respect to different presumptions and objectives of researcher.
