Surveys 1 compiled by Anna Bączkowska 2 Attractions -Scan wide field of issues, populatins, programmes (large-scale data - generalisable results) -gathers data on a one-shot basis – economical and efficient - Generates numerical data – easy to present and process (statistically) and verify (supports or refutes hypotheses), uncluttered material (accurate results)
