Sure you do! I'm taking a Research Methods class this semester, and one of our big assignments is to create a public opinion survey and run descriptive statistics on it. We're allowed to do the survey on anything we want, and I chose tornadoes (naturally).

I created a survey with 24 simple questions that I would like to ask you to answer. The questions range from your opinions about tornadoes, knowledge of tornado forecasts, and some general questions. Not only will your completion of this survey help me with a project in one of my courses, but the questions in the survey will help me better understand how different people think about tornadoes.

Please answer the questions as truthfully as possible. There are no "right" or "wrong" answers, I just want to gauge what you think and know. Keep in mind that this survey is anonymous -- I cannot trace your responses back to you.

Anyone can complete this survey, regardless of profession, location, or demographics...but I do ask that you only complete the survey once. I'd like to get as many responses as possible from as many different people as possible. I can't compensate you for completing the survey, but I will give you a big "THANK YOU!" if you do.

I appreciate your participation. If you have any comments, questions, or criticisms about the questions, formatting, or anything like that, please let me know in the comments. I tried my best to write the questions in an unbiased manner and so they could be clearly and easily understood.

Survey closed. Thank you for your participation.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
