Subject: Gourmet/Specialty Coffee Survey
 

Hi I'm doing a research paper for a class, and being a coffee enthusiast myself, I chose the topic to be the consumption of gourmet/specialty coffee.
The paper requires that I take a survey, so I have a quick survey concerning my topic.
I would really, really appreciate if you'd took a minute or two to fill it out, it'd really help me out!

Here is the link:

I did your survey, but I'm not sure my definition of gourmet/specialty coffee is the same as yours.

Based on my college and research experience, and the questions you asked, it seems like your paper is going to be pretty short.  

Good luck!

+1.  Not to mention the misspellings, trademark violations, and its overall simplicity.

Maybe it's for high school?

To the OP:  I have no idea what your survey is for, or it is trying to accomplish, but I fear it may not accomplish what you intend.  As pointed out, your definition of "gourmet/speciality coffee" is -- to say the least -- limited, and not applicable to the overwhelming majority of people on this site.  (Few, if any, here would consider a "frappuccino" to be either "gourmet" or "speciality.")  Your options are way too limited.  

We try to be a pretty helpful group around here, but I fear our answers will a) not be very helpful, and b) give you a false impression based upon a very unhelpful and poorly designed survey.

That said, I hope it works . . .

I agree that it's a poorly designed survey that's being presented to the wrong group, unless you're running around and posting this everywhere in the world. CG is an extremely self-selected grouping with a slant that's not likely to give you any sort of reliable data for the general public. It's like going to adoption day at the pet store and doing a survey concerning how much people like cats and dogs.

On the other hand, we're probably a perfect subsample to use to discuss sample selection bias and self-selection bias in the context of a survey ;)

Or perhaps it's a psych class, not statistics, and our comments about the survey are what are really being analyzed here. 8-o
