As I recall, this evaluation matrix was posted to the list awhile back - I
think by Ashley Blewer?? Although focused more on IRs, it's pretty
comprehensive, and I think asks some good questions: https://docs.
Hope this helps, and good luck!

> Hi Steven,
> Even if you've been unable to identify a survey of the type you seek, many
