Survey design and analysis



To provide some top tips, tools and resources to help you prepare and produce surveys.


Surveys are used to collect information via questionnaires. These questionnaires can be administered on paper, electronically, or even via an interview. Well-known surveys include the Census; medical questionnaires; and user feedback questionnaires.

There are many types of survey. Which one you choose will depend on your purpose, the timescale for collecting the results, and the resources available.

Our training course gives practical advice and guidance to help you prepare, produce and design surveys and analyse the resulting data.


By the end of the course, you will understand:

  • survey design
  • the most common sampling techniques
  • how to construct survey questions
  • how to pilot and run a survey
  • how to analyse and present the results.
