Hi there! I am a graduate student at UNCC and I have been given the assignment to “pilot” a questionnaire for our research methods class. I am looking at some of the factors that might play a part in whether people decide to have children or not. Your participation is voluntary and your answers will be kept confidential. Also, it is to be anonymous, so don’t put your name on it. The questionnaire can be found at http://dmec.gotdns.org Thanks in advance to those that participate! (You are helping me out big-time If you experience any problems, please contact me at [email protected]

Yay! I was just checking my results and saw that I had one from a parent. Woo hoo! I want to get both sides of the story, so to speak.

Thanks!

I filled it out, too, although I'm not sure what "family values" refers to on question 15. A lot of politicians use that phrase in a right-wing way that I don't agree with. (?????) So does it mean that, or does it mean truly things that benefit families?

I wasn't sure if I wanted to post something on a UNC site, but I guess it's Charlotte and not Chapel Hell. (I went to Duke - some time ago, so I am not really serious about the rivalry anymore)

but seriously, I filled out the questionnaire and it would be interesting to see the results.

thanks!

There were some questions that I would like to see discussed here at mothering. Can't wait to hear about your conclusions.

Thank you all so much!!!! I am overwhelmed at the responses that I am getting! If you haven't filled it out yet, please do so. I will let you all know what I find out (I am going to leave the questionnaire up for a while to give people a chance to fill it out). This is a pilot questionnaire for a class, but I really hope for the same response rate when I do my questionnaire for my thesis!

kofduke, I, too have my MSW! And I remember the research classes well. Do you still practice?

not-yet-a-mom, I responded to the questionaire, and am hoping to see the results of the study. Can you post the results here at MDC?

I also posted my replies. Thought it was interesting.

Carolyn
Pregnant; due in September

BTW, I know this sounds like a really stupid question, but it could be taken both ways. If I'm pregnant, am I a parent or technically still considered not a parent? I chose that I am. I feel by nurturing and feeding in utero I'm already mothering a bit

What do you guys think?

Hi AutumnWind - I did law school at the same time as social work school & am working as a lawyer now (well, technically on a six-month leave!) - I'm currently working as a litigator but am hoping at sometime in the future to combine the degrees; maybe doing mediation.

Sorry that I haven't been able to get back to you all with the results of my practice questionnaire. This semester has been trying, so I was planning to analyze the data in mid-May, BUT my computer's hard-drive died this week, so I lost everything!!! I am so sorry!!!!

On a positive note, I will be working of the official questionnaire for my thesis (pending approval from the university Institutional Review Board) in the coming weeks and hope to have it online by mid-summer. I can only hope for the same entusiastic responses!
