Over time, I have written a number of posts on doing survey research, and I had been thinking of bringing them together in a single ‘index’ post for ease of reference, but somehow never managed to get round to it. Since I am currently not creating any new content, this is as good an opportunity as any, so here goes:
- An annotated bibliography on survey research.
- Recruiting research participants should be an honest, transparent process; but are there exceptions to this rule?
- You can find advice on writing survey questions in these two posts: 1, 2.
- Demographics sections on surveys are often poorly designed: here are some ways to improve on them.
- Questionnaire based research often uses scales: you can find some advice on using scales effectively in this post. For advice on how to interpret the data that scales produce, have a look here.
- And here’s some advice regarding questionnaire layout.
- Sometimes, you may find that you need to slightly tamper with data in order to protect your participants. This post explains when this is necessary, and how to do it.
I hope this list was useful! If you have any comments or questions, just ask :)
