To answer this question, a real campaign was carried out (see details in Chapter 7). Instead of contacting all selected customers, a random subset of those selected customers was withheld from contact. It turns out that while the contacted group had a response rate of 5.4%, the not- contacted group had a response rate of 4.3%.
