With the contact information question type, you can collect respondent contact details and demographic information in the same question.
By default, the contact information question type asks respondents the following identity and contact fields.
However, you can turn off any of these fields and add custom fields to retrieve more information from the respondents.
By default, the mailing address will be turned off. On toggling it on, the survey creators will be able to view the below fields.
Address Line 1
Address Line 2
You can also customize the text labels of these fields with a rich content editor. The form fields can be set to accept input in a specific format only using a RegEx pattern.
Apart from the validation of the input format, survey-creators can either force responses from the respondents or request a response. In the latter case, even if the respondent doesn't answer the question, the survey will be submitted.

You can add a report label to identify the responses easily in the reports.
Consider any services company that wants to conduct a customer satisfaction survey to get their customers' feedback. If too many customers from the same region are not happy, it points to many possible improvement areas. On digging data further, the management team can find out if the quality of delivery needs to be improved or customer support.
Note: In a GDPR compliant survey, market researchers must get the consent of the respondents before collecting any personal information
