My daughter spent the 2016 spring semester studying at the University of Wyoming in Laramie as part of her undergraduate degree in Criminology and Sociology. She's now back home and is in her final year. Her research dissertation is going to be a study of American citizens perceptions of their police forces. She has created an online survey which should only take a few minutes to complete (entirely anonymously). Her own contacts in the USA that she is distributing this to will likely be a different demographic from a bunch of middle aged, irascible Rush fans so that diversity would be welcomed. Feel free to distribute the link further. Thanks for any help you can give.

Love it that she used keen in a sentence. :)

 

Hope I didn't throw anything off by filling out the 'what state were you raised in?' question by answering: CA (0-5yo) - NY (6-12yo) - FL (13+yo) ; I tried to keep it database field friendly... Hope my answers help her.

Done.  I really wanted to help her out so I completed the survey about 15 times or so. Had my 9-year-old do a few as well.  Good luck to her!

Spread it to some people I know. Hopefully you'll get some data from my circle of obnoxious 20- and 30-something friends.

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

Thanks, a diverse sample is what she would like to get.

I passed because I'm not American. But the first question; only two genders to choose from? Are they barbarians in Wyoming? ;)

Done, but one question seemed worded wrong...couldn't tell what the proper response would be to 18 I think it was...yes being agreement that cops are more confrontational, or yes being less??? Maybe my comprehension skilz are questionable...

I read it as "more or less," like it was hedging.
Still ambiguous wording and if I were her academic adviser I'd have asked her to clarify the question, but it's not that bad. She's just an undergrad, right?

Good point. Looking at it, she's missed out an option for less confrontational. I think she only had 5 options and was trusting to get in questions relating to specific groups and has totally missed adding less confrontational as an option. ARaaR - correct, she's an undergraduate.
