Under this topic, general comments about the content of the questionnaire can be made (i.e. number of questions, sequence of sections, skip logic between different sections)

  • No labels


  1. We would like to point out lack of automatic control inside the questions, e.g. there is possible to  mark both answer yes and no simultaneously.

    1. Thank you for this comment. For some questions it is technically possible to mark yes and no, but we designed the questions in this way on purpose, in order to reduce the number of questions and keep the questionnaire simple. Consider for instance question Q4 in Introduction (2) "Have you conducted a census...". If we want to avoid the "problem" of marking yes and no, the question should be replaced by three questions:
      1) Have you conducted a census?: yes/no
      if "no": 2) are you planning to conduct a census before 2014? yes/no
      if "no": 3) why you are not planning to conduct one? Insufficient funds, etc. (multiple answer)
      We think that, considering that the questionnaire will be filled by national census experts (and not by the public), the fact that technically they could mark yes and no should not be a problem, and they would not do it. Anyway, we will consider the possibility otf changing the questions, but as I wrote this would result in an even longer questionnaire.
