... One questionnaire solicited feedback from facility managers, the other from facility users. Because of biases introduced by the self-selected population that responded to the questionnaire, the committee does not believe that these results are statistically significant; rather, they are intended to give a flavor of the population.

... by a variety of techniques: · Direct e-mail to facilities identified by committee members and staff, as indicated below in the list of 275 facilities; · Electronic posting on the committee's public Web site; · Paper distribution at the American Physical Society's March 2004 meeting in Montreal, Canada, and the Materials Research Society's April 2004 meeting in San Francisco, California; and · E-mail solicitation to subscribed members of the American Physical Society's Division of Materials Physics and Division of Condensed Matter Physics. Following is the list of facilities specifically targeted to receive the facilities' and users' questionnaires by direct e-mail solicitation.

University of Wisconsin Materials Science Center, University of Wisconsin at Madison ANALYSIS Quantitative analysis of the responses to the facility managers' questionnaire is inappropriate, of course, because of sample bias and size, but several figures (Figures C.2 through C.6) are presented here to provide information, based on responses to the facilities questionnaire, regarding sources of support for and distribution of annual operating budgets, numbers of users and makeup of the user base, and full-time-equivalent staff supporting midsize facilities.
