Test Quantity - definition(s)

Test Quantity - A test mailing of a sufficiently large number of names from a list to enable the mailer to evaluate the responsiveness of the list. The test quantity must satisfy three conditions. It must be a reasonably random sample of the universe, it must be large enough to provide break-even response for the mailer, and it must provide enough response for statistical validity. Most mailers require fifty to one-hundred responses. (Note: The size of the test quantity has nothing to do with the size of the list.)
