The example above shows people’s responses to a question posed using SurveyMonkey, as part of the North East Lincolnshire ‘Empower Project’ (2010 - 11). The research team identified the questions, against which people responded, during focus group activities and there was an ‘other’ option, that cannot be seen here. Survey Monkey and ‘Google forms’ (part of the ‘Google docs’ suite of free online software), allows you to reach many people and collate their responses with ease.
