Writing surveys can be lots of fun, especially if you're a naturally curious sort of person. Now you can get answers to all your questions!
First, you need to pick a topic for your survey.
Get ideas for surveys from your dreams, experiences, the media, conversations, books, and anything else that makes you think! Plus, you can always check our Topic List for inspiration.
Bring focus to your survey by narrowing your topic down. One way to help you narrow your topic is to write one question for your survey -- and then make all the other questions revolve around that. If all your questions don't fit this topic, you can always write another survey!
You can make an outline the same way you make your survey specific. Ask 4 or 5 questions related to your specific topic. Then put your sections in an order that makes sense.
To make our first group, we could ask "What do you do to make sure you have a strong relationship with your parents?" Then, maybe we want to keep our survey balanced, so we ask, "What do your parents do to make sure they have a strong relationship with you?" Keep on going until you have 4 or 5 broad questions like these.
