Questions, types of -

In surveys and interviews information is gathered by asking questions. Different kinds of questions lead to different kinds of information and this leads to different kinds of analysing the data.

Open questions are used in interviews. The respondent has to think of and to formulate the answer. The result is a text that has to be analysed with qualitative techniques.

Closed questions are used in surveys. The respondent have to tick an answer. The information is stored in a database and analysed with quantitative techniques.

My goal is to teach you how to conduct good research.


Good research provides you with better information.
With better information, you can make better decisions.
With better decisions, you can create a healthier, wealthier and freer world,
for people, fauna and flora, for current and future generations.

That is why I think it is important that  you know how to do your research well.
