The complexity of the problems which must be solved and the evolution, on the one hand, of psycho-sociological science, and, on the other hand, of statistical technology and computer science, have contributed to a very elaborate scheme in Marketing Research. Nowadays, it is quite normal to associate with the problems encountered in the collection of information, analysis and computerised methods which lead to a better comprehension of this information.
