Started filling it in but my youngest residing child is 4 months old, but survey said it was an invalid format. I guess 1 is the minimum age?

I noticed that. The question about how much time your kid spends with their non resident father was a bit abrupt. Couldn't they ask a filter question first instead of assuming the father isn't around first?

There were a couple of those, that also made it difficult to interpret what the question was asking, and it was ambiguous as to how to answer when there was not a NA option.


Also not survey design exactly but I HATE those extreme dichotomy questions - I imagine there are so FEW people that actually believe what they answered in the locus of contol questions. I answered them but my answers absolutely do not represent my beliefs.

This is how I feel as well.  I answered the dichotomy questions the best I could, but don't feel as though they really accurately reflect my thoughts.

I would reply, but I refuse to include income data. Sorry.

#24 FeralFP

Posted 12 December 2012 - 07:26 PM

Agree with others about the survey not being well done...but may I ask why some people don't want to answer the income question when it is anonymous?


Just curious...
