Description

This course is aimed at those who need to plan and design questionnaire-based surveys and those who need to analyse the data collected.

The day covers the vital activities of designing a quality survey and obtaining a good sample. It covers the following topics.

  • Defining your sample
  • Choosing the right sampling methods to obtain a representative sample (e.g. stratified sampling, cluster sampling, multi-stage sampling, …)
  • Deciding on the best way to collect your data (e.g. online, face-to-face, postal questionnaire, …)
  • Designing questions to get good quality answers
  • Deciding on the sample size needed to get estimates that have sufficient accuracy
  • Using effect sizes and power to decide the sample size needed for statistical tests
  • The software G*Power will be used to demonstrate sample size calculations

No prior knowledge of statistics is required.
