Done with Surveys that aren't really Surveys
« on: December 01, 2011, 11:02:47 am »

I always respond to the survey requests because I'm interested in being heard on such topics as healthcare. I always make it through the sex, age, income, location, portion of what I believe is truly "qualifying" for a survey. Then, I satr answering the questions, and somewhere between 50-75% of completion I get a message that I no longer "qualify" for the survey.

I don't think that because you aren't giving the "right" answers for that you should be disqualified. That isn't a survey, it's loading the statistics. There is no honesty in it, and I have already finished half, or more, of the questions so I beleive I should get paid.

America is full of skewed statistics because of this type of practice. I think its wrong, what do you think?

I understand.. but I would still keep trying them maybe at different times, because you never know.

I dont like those kind of surveys. I always try my hardest to get through them so I can get credit for the hard work I did. It would be great to get more of the surveys that let you " voice your opinion", (fill in the blanks). I know there are a few surveys like this out there because I have completed a few before. It is always nice and fun to "voice your opinion" on those kind of surveys. It makes me think that I have changed a product for the better and the more likelyhood I would buy that product in the store if my opinion was used. Makes me feel good that I changed a product.   :)

It's not wrong because in all honesty, most surveys are targeting a demographic. If they TOLD you what they wanted, you would just fill in the info to match it. I know it sucks, because I've been through my fair share of it. All you can do is keep filling them out and looking out for things more in your wheelhouse. Good luck!
