Resource Information

The survey should address the following questions (Suskie, 1996):

  • How will the results be used?
  • What are the objectives of your survey?
  • What are the critical questions to be answered?
  • What information do you need to answer the questions?
  • Is a survey the appropriate data collection method?
  • Do you really need a survey?
  • How will you analyze and report the data?
