Exercise 3

1. Pilot your draft questionnaire. Invite critical comments.
  • Were the questions comprehensible?
  • Does the order of asking them make a difference?
  • Would people have preferred differnt ways to ask the questions ( eg flashcards for sensistive topics)?

2.   Choose a sample (consider pros and cons or random sampling, random stratified sampling, sample biases etc)

2.   Administer questionnaire and keep a log noting any problems (e.g. built-in selections when approaching people in the street)

3.   Think of how to record data (especially for open-ended questions)

4.   Think of displaying the data graphically? Descriptive statistics?
