In case anyone is interested, there was an excellent discussion of volunteer sampling (focus was a survey on loneliness) on Radio 4 today, which is available as a podcast and is being repeated on Sunday 7th October at 8pm. The programme is called "More or Less" and the title of the episode is "Loneliness, School funding and same-sex divorce". They had a statistician commenting on sampling and she pointed out some of the limitations in a very user-friendly way.
