One of the most important tools for researchers is the survey. Our evidence is often based on surveys, and the quality of this evidence depends on the survey design, data collection, and analysis.
Surveys allow researchers to measure attitudes, behaviours, values and norms. This means that survey data can be used to study a wide variety of research questions. They can also be analysed in a variety of ways, some of which are more appropriate than others.
This course will provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of survey research methods. It will focus on all aspects of the survey research process, from the design of surveys prior to data collection, up to and including the analysis of survey data and reporting of results. Participants will develop specialist knowledge about a range of issues, including different sources of bias, response psychology, measurement theory, and non-response. They will also gain first-hand experience of survey analysis using a variety of applied techniques.
