Description Surveys are a key component of quantitative research whether this is for government, academia, research institutes, or other organisations. The recent explosion of easy-to-use web survey packages means that everyone thinks they can do a survey. However generating statistically unbiased and reliable data is more complex than writing a few questions. Without proper instruction, the conclusions drawn from a survey can be flawed and misleading.

This course looks at each of the quality areas for producing a successful and efficient quantitative survey. It covers all the major methods of data collection (quantitative interviewing, web and paper self-completion) as well as all the key aspects of the survey process from initial design through implementation through post-field processing. It focuses on the practical details of conducting a survey as well as including crucial tips from what is known in the survey methodology and statistical literature.
