Resource for Creating Your Own Surveys

One key to getting a good understanding of the target of your research project is to create a good survey. The Association of Religion Data Archives, an online repository of the best surveys and studies in the sociology of religion, has created tools to help you find survey questions by subject matter and save them to your own question bank, allowing you to build your survey online. The Measurement Wizard permits study organizers to compare and evaluate past survey items used to measure 114 frequently used key concepts. Once a concept is selected, the survey can be refine by sub-category, and the range of questions from past surveys may be reviewed. One feature allows you to compare wording in multiple questions; another allows you to filter for specific characteristics. In all, 7,689 survey questions have been included in the databank.
