    Not sure how much control you have over the survey questions, but it frustrates me when surveys don’t have an option for education between high school and college. I don’t have a degree, but I did earn a two-year techincal diploma, and I doubt I’m the only one in that situation.

    Anyone with the intelligence of a garden slug can get a high-school diploma these days, so you’d think that post-secondary education of any sort is a distinction that your researchers would want to make.

    I want a pink one!

    Ditto on 2-year degrees.

    Also, most surveys clarify the question about income by explicitly saying “Individual” income or “Household” income.

    @Kierst_thara: At least you’re not self-conscious about it… It’s just a survey ;)

    and I’ve seen plenty of “slugs” with phd’s.

    Would it be wrong for me to say that only fools fill out online surveys so my chance for getting the iPod increases?

    please make me win. i need a shuffle to make music in my ears.

  11. Kierst_thara says:

    @faust1200: I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic or not. Did my post make me sound self-conscious? (Does this post make me look fat?)

    …I just figure that if I take time to fill out a survey, it ought to be accurate. Apparently I’m full of more details than most companies are interested in, though.

    When do we find out if we get the shuffle?

    @Tim Matheson:

    Dunno, the rules are generic rules for all their contests and doesn’t specify.

    Shame they’re doing an apple product. I hate itunes. I’d give it away if I won it.

    I gave one to my daughter for Christmas. It’s great to have an iPod while jogging on a morning run…wish I would have kept it for myself.

    I worked in market research for two years. Household Income (HHI) is the appropriate way to ask how much money you make. Typically, this question is preceeded by some sort of question regarding your marital status so the information can be segmented appropriately.

    Segmented, meaning, the questions can be combined in statistical tables to show the actual demographic of the respondent. For example, after looking at the segmented data, you would be able make a statement like: single respondents are more likely to make $30,000 – $50,000 than married respondents, etc.

    The simple solution to the college question is to add a ‘technical/vocational degree’ option or a ‘some college’ option. We ran up against this many times while compiling internet research.

  16. Man… reached the limit already? Booooo

  17. Emrikol says:

    I agree! BOO!!! I can’t take it! I don’t care about the iPod, I just want to share my views on whatever those yummy questions were!

  18. gardencat says:

    It was a basic survey;

    Pretty much your name, your age, your valid email, and what is your yearly income. That’s it.

    @medalian1 You don’t have to use iTunes to put music on an iPod. Checkout lifehacker.com for tips on how to get music onto an iPod w/o iTunes. I hate iTunes too, mainly because it’s forced upon us so much.

    I tried running with a 30GB Video Ipod and it was tough to do. I ended up holding it in my hand the entire time. It’d be nice to have something smaller that I can fit some music on and run/workout with at the same time… *hint hint*…

    @Kierst_thara: Ya I thought you sounded a wee bit self-conscious and was trying to tell you don’t worry. No the post doesn’t make you look fat either :) Although I was thinking this post is giving my hair the frizzies.
