Part I: 1. The first problem with this question is that it assumes that the person owns a pet. This question should also be broken up into more than one question and rephrased as so: 1. Do you own a pet? Yes _______(1) Move to question 2 No _______(2) Skip to question 4 2. How many pets do you own? 3. How old is(are) your pet(s)? 2. This question assumes that the person owns a car. The question should be rephrased as so: Do you own a car? If so what kind? 3. For this question, the possible responses need to be uniformly labeled from 1-5. Also, people who have incomes of $25,000 or $28,000 fall into both responses number 1 and 2, and 2 and 3 respectively. The ranges of income need to be changed to $10,000-$24,999, and $25,000-$27,999. 4. This question is unbalanced because it offers a response for those who ”slightly dis- agree,” but not for those who slightly agree. Also, it offers a response for those who “agree,” but not for those who “disagree.” The best possible responses for this question would be Strongly Agree, Agree, Neither Agree Nor Disagree, Disagree, Strongly Dis- agree. 5. Question number 5 is a dichotomous question and therefore should not be worded “to what extent,” but simply rather “Do you plan on purchasing a new car within the next 12 months?” 6. This question, like question number 3, may have respondents that fall into more than one category.
