Title How to Conduct Surveys: A Step-by-Step Guide
Author Fink, A.
Year 2008
Access date 23.04.2009

Many texts on research glibly say to conduct a survey, but few give you practical information based on experience on how to go about it properly. Fink (medicine and public health, U. of California at Los Angeles) has updated this classic to reflect current practice in her description of the types of surveys conducted and their uses, the questions, scales, and appearance of the survey form, preparation of proper open- and closed-response questions, sampling techniques, survey design, analysis and presentation of the results, including a very helpful survey of graph types and their uses. The text takes close consideration of the fact that many who conduct surveys are using personal computers with the near-inevitable software.
