Understanding why Trump won.

Looking for good analysis, preferably quantitative, of how Trump won. Where are people looking at the available data and sharing ideas? What parts of Trump's message brought people out for him? How can other politicians address the legitimate concerns of his voters without all the negative stuff that goes along with him? [more inside]

Creating, editing, and administering surveys on a tablet w/o internet

Does anyone know of any applications that allow you to create, edit, and administer surveys, all offline and on a tablet (Android)? Ideally the application would save responses as a .csv or another file format that's amenable to data analysis. I'm currently using KoBo Toolbox, which allows you to administer surveys offline, but it doesn't seem to allow me to edit existing surveys or upload new surveys when I'm out of internet access. (I conduct research in remote regions where internet is not available for long periods of time.) Thanks in advance! [more inside]

Dem survey - real or fundraiser in disguise?

So.. I got the "Official 2016 Democratic Election Survey" in the mail today. I can't decide if it's mainly a fake survey to increase fundraising, or if my answers will actually be tabulated and used. Any thoughts from the hivemind? [more inside]

Damp surveyors in Edinburgh

Lots of things are damp in Edinburgh, but I'm being quoted £6K to fix a damp problem in a flat I'm looking to buy. Standard advice seems to be to get a survey done by an independent surveyor who won't then try to sell a remedy, but I can't find one. [more inside]

Best website for market research? Difficulty: Australia

I have a couple of market research things I would like to survey segments of the population on, beyond who I know. What survey websites allow you to do this as an independent individual? Addendum: They need to have an option for Australia. (SurveyMonkey is the kind of thing I am looking for, but I'm shopping around in case there's a better option for what I'm doing in particular.)

Getting Public Radio Stations to Respond to a Survey

I have been working for about a year on a project that I expect will lead to a book about the public radio fund drive. I've asked a lot of questions here about it as I've tried to figure out how to approach the topic. Along with focus groups (I've done two, planning a third) and a literature review I'm finishing, I need to conduct a survey of public radio stations. [more inside]

Book title: history of Toronto live music clubs in the rock era

Maybe a decade ago I read a book on the history of live music venues in Toronto from the 1950s to maybe the eighties or nineties. I am maybe 80% sure that title was borrowed from a song title, but every one that comes to mind (e.g "Heart of Gold") is something other than this. Anyone know the book? [more inside]

An online quiz tool that gives test-taker detailed feedback & results?

I'm looking for an online quizzing tool/website/etc. that is: 1) free 2) gives the test-taker detailed results & feedback on questions missed - possibly a graphical depiction 3) would be easy to use in a 7th grade classroom where all the students have access to a chromebook. Thanks for any and all suggestions! (My overall goal is to have students screencap their results to store in a digital portfolio as a pre-assessment and artifact of their initial knowledge of a topic.)

Where was the map of the influential American cities?

A couple years ago I ran across an unusual map. The map was of the United States and it didn't have states. Instead the map had shapes surrounding influential cities. The map was created by surveying Americans and asking them "What city represents your area at a national level?"

Surveying our property

We need to survey our 3 acre property in a semi urban area. The surveyor claims to have a very hard time to find data to start with. I am wandering in the era of precision GPS, areal survey's with drones etc that if there isn't a much more efficient way of getting the data that is needed for our Landscape architect to to work in his CAD programs. I understand that there is a big responsibility on the surveyor when it comes to lot lines and when construction has to take place right at the edge with the neighbors. [more inside]

Assessment tool for grantseekers: personality quiz edition?

I am currently working with a local nonprofit to create a new grant program focused on community engagement. This organization serves primarily as a funding intermediary, raising funds and distributing them as grants to other nonprofits throughout the region. They actually have a number of existing grant programs that already require varying levels of community engagement, education, and/or outreach, and have tasked me with creating a self-assessment tool to pair potential grantees to the most appropriate grant(s). I'm thinking I need a tool that would help me create something similar to those personality quizzes you find online, but I am finding it difficult to know what resources exist for this and how I should format the thing.

Efficient paper feedback surveys

I want to give paper surveys to a number of people and then use a computer to compile the responses. My thought is to use a camera or scanner to enter the evaluations into the computer, and then run some sort of OCR (which i know nothing about) or other program to highlight which boxes have X's in them or which items are circled, and then throw all that into an excel spreadsheet for further analysis. From a technology standpoint, (a) is this possible? (b) is this possible to set up in a week? (C) is this possible in such a way that tech-illiterate people can do it swiftly once it's been set up?

How to make an email survey to identify people in a photo?

I have a good scan of the group photo from my grandparents wedding.

What do you do exactly?

We are planning on getting our little .34 of an acre property surveyed & the boundaries staked. We are in an older neighborhood with basic lots & homes. I plan to do my due diligence and find a good surveyor at a reasonable price. What should I be asking and what should I be weary of when I call around? Also, how exactly do I find who to call? Is there a registry? Are surveyors licensed? I have already checked with the county- there are no existing surveys for our property other than the original 1950 plat map. Obviously I have no clue what I'm doing, but want to sound like I have a at least a little insight when I start getting quotes. Tips & tricks appreciated.
