|Design a questionnaire to assess attitudes towards different methods of contraception. You can choose to focus on the acceptability of the male pill or the once a month pill. You may prefer to compare attitudes to a range of methods. |
You should consider which demographic factors are likely to influence a persons choice of method of contraception. These might include marital status, religion, number of children, the contraceptive methods they have used previously and other factors. Then write questions which will yield the information you consider relevant (but see Hints).
Pilot your questionnaire with a few people to check that it is likely to be effective.
The golden rule when designing questionnaires is to keep them as short and concise as possible. Only collect information which you are actually going to use. The general public soon lose patience if a questionnaire is too long. You will also find that the results are simpler to analyse.
If you give multiple choice answers to questions, this makes the results easier to collate at the end. However, make sure you give sensible choices and a wide range. Sometimes, it is useful to leave a couple of lines for comments following some multiple choice questions.
