Dear People (and very specificaly those in the US),

I am a PhD student in economics and I am going to hold a web questionnaire
that will take place in the US.
The numebr of respondents will be about 1500.

I have prepared the web questionnaire myself.
During the preparation I checked books on questionnaire design and other
questionnaires that were similar in nature.
I did checks and I discussed it with my supervisor.

But I am not that all confident if I could design the questionnaire well.
In particular, I do not know if the questions are clearly understandable.
I am not a native English speaker after all

Therefore, I need some people to express their opinon on the questionnaire.
Escpecially I want to know if the questionniare is understandable to you at
the first glance.
If not, what is not clear etc...

Would there be anybody willing to have a look at the questions and express
their opinion?
I will not necesserily askyour view for all the questions.
Checking only one question will already be a great help to build up my
confidence.
Especially of those of you who are good in English, I would like to ask your
gudience.

If you would be willing to have a look at one or two questions, please let
me know and I can send the question to your email adress.
I will send a file in word format or in pdf, however you wish (you should
not worry about virus or anything in the files. I am an academic and I am
not into such fuss that will give yo a headache, trust me on this).

I would very much appreciate your concern.
After all, this is a scientific study and it is for the American Society.
Your help would be helping the research, not to my personal interest.

Hoping to hear from you.

Hi,
I suggest you post some of your questions here, for us to comment on.
That's how most of us prefer to help people.

Best wishes, Clive
Hello,

Thanks for your concern. 

I cannot really paste the questions here because they include tables that the respondent needs to consider.

Otherwise I would have already pasted it.

I will send the questions in pdf or word format, however people here would prefer.

I send the question to private email adresses or I can upload to rapidshare or to megaupload.

Or people can suggest any othe way. does not really matter for me.

But I would like to stress that my claim is no joke or spam or anything like that.

I am doing scientific research and I expect serious replies and concerns.

i also would like to stress that my claim is not a personal claim but I am asking it to improve the research I am working on.

It is for the Society.

Regards,

Hi,
We give free advice here on the Public Forum.

If you need private help, possibly someone will volunteer, or possibly not. You may also encounter charges for private help.
So, it's obviously better if you can do at least a little cutting and pasting to put your text right here.

Hi,

Thats a bit difficult because my work is also copyrighted. If I paste it here then the whole public can acess to it.

I dont really wish that. 

I am just looking for some serious volunteers who are willing to help for research.

Hi,

If you are going to send it to 1500 people, you're going to make it fairly public.

Anyway, good luck with it.

Clive
Hi,

Well you may be right but if I paste it here, would you be willing to have a look?

Hi,
Sure, as long as it is not very, very long. If it is, it's better to post it in smaller chunks.
