  1. exploratory survey

    An exploratory survey is a type of research method used primarily to gain broad insights or provide an overview of a certain subject, phenomenon, or issue. Its main purpose is to explore, identify and better understand potential issues or topics, often used at the preliminary stages of research. Since the focus is on exploration, rather than definitive conclusions, samples for such surveys tend to be smaller and less structured.
