Municipal Research Survey Respondents

If you are serious about conducting great surveys, consider these points…

We Mitigate

•Poor methodology, questionnaire writing and survey fielding practices

•Poor response rates or lopsided responses

•Dirty data caused by special interest groups ballot stuffing and nefarious Internet bots – DIY survey software with one-button reporting is dangerous to your data and results.

•Lack of respondents of subject matter knowledge sufficient to answer survey questions by introducing the correct background information at the right time within the survey. Let’s not ask them to cram all the new knowledge from a webpage and then complete a survey from memory – that’s what we did in high school.  

•‘Municipalese’ & ‘Planningese’ – poor or complex language that isn’t understood by average residents  - we’ve even introduced an in-survey Glossary to add to residents’ understanding

•Politically sensitive or charged subjects and language to maintain a neutral position
