questionnaire

a planned set of questions used to collect data. It can be sent to the respondents by mail (when the response rate is poor and the sample of respondees is often biased) or used as the basis of a personal interview. The latter procedure has the advantage of quickly detecting questions that are ambiguous or are couched in terms that will elicit information on the wrong subject. The biggest problem is to keep the size of the questionnaire small enough to avoid exasperating the subjects. It is also desirable to couch the questions so that the responses can be easily categorized and the results computerized.
