Experience in sociological practice and sociological analysis of the questionnaires shows that the average questionnaire consists of approximately 100-150 words on the page. Page wordy profiles sometimes covers 150-200 or even 300 words. It is about the same characters as their is on the page, typed in 2 intervals. In a text variant reading is not usually difficult, because the text is always logically linked. However, reading the questionnaire, where the questions are each on its own, outside of the obvious logical connection, but still written in small, hard to read font and in a special way is located, causes great difficulties. I know the type, the questionnaire is on page 120 to 140 words, and that, in our opinion. is optimal from the point of view of convenience.
Be aware that the volume of the questionnaire by the number of words may vary depending on the category of the respondents. So, respondents with a high level of education, can be offered, if required the objectives of the study, relatively verbose form, whereas for people who are not accustomed to textual content and having a low level of education, it is better to build a few words in the questionnaire.
So, the sociologist V. D. Shapiro, in the study of problems of work and life pensioners (ISI, USSR Academy of Sciences, 1973), given the age characteristics of the respondents, the questionnaire was built so that on each page had an average of 50 words. In addition, the area of the page, and the font was increased approximately two times in comparison with the usual questionnaire. This form was read quickly and easily perceived.
Speaking about the problems of long-winded questionnaires and recommending to stick to a certain optimal number of words in it, I must say that we are talking only about the so-called direct questions that need to be distinguished from situational and figurative. The last verbosity is a prerequisite, since they should describe a particular situation, to convey to respondents the idea or concept contained in the question. In direct questions the meaning given in General concepts that requires careful selection of concepts and conceptual expressions. Every new word as a concept, is not conditioned by the semantic content of a question may hinder his understanding of the Respondent and, as already mentioned, even to distract his attention.
Famous Russian linguist A. M. peshkovsky said, "the fewer the words, the less misunderstandings". However, it was said, quite another matter, but this statement is also suitable to our case.
Indeed, the extra words often lead to misunderstanding. Issues and alternatives should be formulated briefly and clearly, to be able to understand the meaning of the first reading: "What is the complexity of the tourism campaign, which was the last time You participated?", "Who did You work prior to this venture?", "Do You like the TV show "animal world"?", etc. Repeat that simple form build pretty hard and if someone will say after your many days of painful work: "This profile and I could be", ask him to do it. And if he tries, you will never hear him make such statements.
Maleslaves or verbosity of the questionnaire have a direct impact on the total volume of the questionnaire, which refers to the total number of questions. Link this video: wordy questionnaire with lots of questions makes the questionnaire volume, whereas I know the type questionnaire with a small number of questions makes it compact.
We must remember that the influence of these two factors is not unique. Many words may bore the Respondent, even if the questionnaire contains a small number of questions as to Wade through the palisade into the meaning of the question sometimes very difficult. I know the type a questionnaire containing a large number of short questions are formulated clearly and precisely, less tiring.
