    Hello everyone!

    I am doing a final year University project in psychology and need some help with the questionnaire participants.

    The questionnaire measures beliefs regarding happiness of people living in different countries and perceptions of levels of 12 factors of these three countries.

    I would much appericate if you could spend 5 minutes to fill the questionnare in. I am not able to give anything in return but I would be very greatful for your input.

    So, if you are from the USA or the UK only, please participate here:

    PS> At the end of the questionnaire you can leave your e-mail, and when I complete my research I will reply to you with feedback. You are free to leave this blank.
    All of the information given by you will be treated in the strictest confidentiality.

    I filled it out, but it didn;t work. It said to fill in the spots marked with a "*", but all the fields are filled in.

    I filled it in until it asked my age. I'm 14. Youngest on there is 18.

    Giant thanks, guys! I very much appreciate your help.:):):)

    I am in the UK and have huge trouble finding respondents in the USA, so please, please fill it in if you have not done so yet.

    If you are from Canada, please be welcomed to participate.
    If you are under 18 just stick 18 in the field.

    As I say I am not collecting any personal data nor sending you to a dodgy site; it is just my legit Uni study.

    I went ahead and filled it in although I was uncomfortable assessing 'happiness' on a national basis, especially since 'subaltern' populations tend to be left out of the national equation.

    I think it's weird how it changes format from 1 being happiest to it being unhappiest in the second portion. I hope when I submit it all my answers are not back to front.

    That is true, but this is a short term study and I, unfortunately, cannot account to all the variations of every single country.

    Yep, that is deliberately done to keep respondents focused.

    Thanks for your paticipation, guys :D

    Really hard to determine whether I think one country is happier than another lol, but I did it anyways! Another American response for you :)

    Well, I think you're going to get skewed results from that. I know that I used the same scale for all sections.

    Maybe the real quiz is on people's attention span for surveys and how closely they pay attention?

    I considered that. If so, then I guess he's getting what he wanted.

    I filled it out. But I would have liked to seen a self-employed option, since I own my own biz and would give a slightly different demographic.

    Thanks, I will bear that in mind for the next time.


    At the end of the study I will produce the world map of the actual and perceived happiness in countries' and post it here.

    Many thanks to those participated; this helps the study a lot :)

    Honestly I think that might have been a bad idea and your results may very well be inaccurate for it.
