I don’t understand what you mean by “measure the distribution.” Do you want to measure how diverse/concentrated the answers are? If so, you can calculate the index of qualitative variation, which calculates how close to the maximum level of variation of a distribution is. The formula for the IQV is: ???=??−1∗(1−∑??2??−1) Where K is the number of categories, k is the specific categories, and p is the proportion in the category of k.

I thought it would take too long and be too expensive to conduct a social survey. To do research as a front-line employee would be too challenging. Please suggest a more effective approach.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
