Valdis Krebs has excellent suggestions for improving response rates and data quality in organizations. Don't despair if you have 75% response rates since we know at least some measures are robust even with missing data. See our paper. Costenbader, E. & Valente, T. W. (2003). The stability of centrality measures when networks are sampled.
