You make an excellent point. What are these surveys measuring. Often times, I have to work with surveys and let’s just say I’m not a huge fan… It’s not because you can measure something quantitatively that it means it’s valid or accurate. There’s also something to be said about the use of statistics in research… It’s not because you have a good p value that your research is good… A lot of people forget that it’s not about what result you obtain from a calculation that matters, but whether the question that was asked at the beginning can be calculated statistically, is calculated an appropriate way and that result reflects the question that’s investigated.
