This book is a revised and updated edition of Asking Questions: A
Practical Guide to Questionnaire Design, first published in 1982. It
focuses on the type of question asking that social science researchers
and market researchers use in structured questionnaires or interviews.
Many of the principles of effective formalized questioning we
focus on in this book are useful in other contexts. They are useful

6. Questionnaire design. 6.1 Chapter summary.
Once researchers have taken a decision to employ a specific research design and sampling procedure and determined the measurement and scaling method, they can now develop a questionnaire to collect the data required for the study.
The findings from the questionnaire survey conducted among 100 instructors of English in Vietnam about the reading-question design for the intermediate solicited three worth-noticing issues. First, the design aims mainly to develop in students reading skills, language elements or both. Second, the designed questions are largely of recalling and understanding the information (the lower level of cognitive domain, Bo-linn, 2006) and leave a large gap on the applying, analysing, evaluating and creating (the higher level of cognitive domain, Bo-linn, 2006). ...
Since the swap counterparty is typically the bank also acting as ETF provider, investors may
be exposed if the bank defaults
. Therefore, problems at those banks that are most active in
swap-based ETFs may constitute a powerful source of contagion and systemic risk.
In addition, the incentives behind the creation of synthetic ETFs may not be aligned along the
ETF chain, especially as conflicts of interest can arise from the dual role of some banks as
ETF provider and derivative counterparty7
The questionnaire also asks if EIA decision and the development consent should obligatorily take the
form of a single decision (in other words, if separate decisions first on EIA and then on development
consent should be avoided). With regards to this, the experience of NGOs (some of the cases are
mentioned above) shows that the situation when EIA is a separate procedure concluded not by a
binding decision but by a non-binding “opinion” is the most problematic.

Admittedly, not all percentages refer to the same level of problem, i.e., in some studies a broader
concept of psychological distress was used (as measured by screening instruments, such as the
General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) or Self Reporting Questionnaire (SRQ), validated for local
use), whereas in others a nosological diagnosis was used (obtained by instruments such as the
Schedules for Clinical Assessment in Neuropsychiatry (SCAN) and the Mini-International
Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI)).

at people who need to understand statistics, but not develop it as a subject. The typical reader might be a postgraduate
student in health, life or social science who has no knowledge of statistics, but needs to use quantitative methods in their
studies. Students who are engaged in qualitative studies will need to read and understand quantitative studies when they
do their literature reviews, this book may be of use to them.
This report releases the findings of a project undertaken with Delegates of Working
Party No. 2 of the OECD Committee on Fiscal Affairs, investigating policy
considerations in the tax treatment of capital gains of individuals and alternative design

gains/losses of resident taxpayers on domestic assets).
Survey research is a thriving industry worldwide. Rossi et al. (1983) estimated the gross income of the industry in the United States alone to be roughly $5 billion, employing 60,000 persons. There are no current estimates, but the market for survey work has only continued to grow in the last two decades. Accompanying this growth are revolutionary breakthroughs in survey methodology. The field of cognitive psychology has dramatically changed how survey researchers approach the public to request participation in surveys, and how they design questionnaires and interpret survey findings....
