Online Master's Thesis Survey Help

Hey everyone! I am a graduate student at California State University San Bernardino and am working on finishing my masterís thesis! I am in the home stretch and was hoping you would be willing to help me out. I need about 80 more responses. The survey takes about 30-40 mins. I have provided a link to the survey below. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me! Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

As a methodology wonk, who just passed his M.A. defense, if I was your thesis chair, I would be completely astonished that you apparently aren't worried about any form of selection bias. Not only will you only be getting online users, but at DVDtalk, you will only manage to get a sample of DVDTalk users...We are not a representative sample of any other society cohesively.

Thanks for the advice Decadance, but this data will be combined with a larger existing data base. Therefore we are not worried about selection bias.

What is the N of the larger data base and what was the sampling method of the larger data base? What is the population for the set?

LOL @ "Nerd Fight". The n of the larger database is 400. About half were collected by the good ol' paper and pencil method and the other half were collected online. I will be willing to provide you with more info through e-mail.


Thank you to everyone who has completed the survey.
