It is not always the best method. You can't ask a tree how tall it is, or ask a rock of the age. Even if the survey population is composed of people who ask is not the best way. Sometimes people are ignorant, sometimes they give the answers they think are what the interviewer wants to hear. Surveys of smoking and drinking, in particular, always give underestimates because people are ashamed of their actual consumption.
