IRI Response Rate

It appears that Brookings' excellent Iraq Index project may allow me to track every nationwide poll conducted in Iraq in 2006. If so, I could collect the response rates for each and then see whether or not Lancet II is an outlier.

One example is this poll by the International Republican Institute from March 2006. The accompanying Powerpoint slides report a response rate of 93% (2,804 out of 3,000). This is higher than the rates we have seen from WPO but lower than that of Lancet II. I will contact IRI to get more details.
