Example Survey

Management Institute for Quality-of-Life Studies

The Community-Quality-of-Life Survey is a web-based survey administered from our website (the website of the Management Institute for Quality-of-Life Studies or MIQOLS). A staff member at MIQOLS will communicate with your representative to adapt the survey questionnaire to reflect the specific reality of the city. Once the survey questionnaire is adapted to the exact specifications, the survey will then be posted on MIQOLS website. A link to the survey website will then be provided to the representative. The city representative will then send an e-mail letter to all the residents informing them about the availability of the Community-Quality-of-Life survey and encouraging them to participate by clicking on the link that would take them directly to the survey website. The staff member at MIQOLS will help the representative draft the e-mail message requesting participation in the survey. Residents should be assured that the survey will be conducted anonymously and confidentially. That is, residents will not be identified by name or any other form of identification, and the survey results will be reported at the aggregate level only. A time limit of 2-3 weeks will be set to conduct the survey. In the meantime, the representative will send several reminder e-messages to the population reminding them about the survey and request completion if they have not done so already. After the completion deadline, the survey site will be closed and the data will be analyzed and a report will be issued within 2-3 weeks thereafter.
