The progress of social sciences research requires
statistical analysis of survey data. Some aspects are necessary to be emphasized as an early exposure to researchers particularly in the aspects of designing
the survey instrument. This initial exposure is important to researchers working in this area
to ensure an appropriate survey design is employed.
Survey design is a process of selecting a sample of the study from the targeted
population to conduct the survey. In survey design, questionnaire instruments are usually used
to measure attitudes, opinions, behavior, or characteristics of a population based on the collected data. Three main components
in survey design are sample selection, data collection and estimation.
Questionnaire design consists of several popular methods. One of them is questionnaire instrument comprising
question items that can be 'open-ended' or 'close-ended' questions, multiple-choice questions, or questions to assess something on a scale (for example, Likert scale 1 to 10).
Another method is through interview where oral questions will be asked to the respondent personally or by phone or email. This 2 days workshop aims to:
To expose the participants to various sampling techniques
To provide basic skills in developing questionnaire items for survey instrument
To familiarize participants with SPSS for survey sampling & questionnaire design
