what might be some problems with using the survey method
The problems with using the survey method are: 1. Population Issues - Questionnaires require that your respondents can read. [ While this might seem initially like a reasonable assumption for many adult populations, we know from recent research that the instance of adult illiteracy is alarmingly high. 2. Sampling Issues - If you have an incomplete list of the population (i.e., sampling
frame) you may not be able to sample every member of the population. Lists of various groups are extremely hard to keep up to date. 3. Question Issues - A screening question may be needed to determine whether the respondent is qualified to answer your question of interest. 4. Content Issues - If the respondent does not keep up with the news (e.g., by reading the newspaper, watching television news, or talking with others), they may not even know about the news issue you want to ask them about. 5. Bias Issues - Respondents generally want to "look good" in the eyes of others. None of us likes to look like we don't know an answer. 6. Administrative Issues - Last, but certainly not least, you have to consider the feasibility of the survey method for your study. ]
