Number one: Create your own Survey
Advantage

- Ideally you will want a large random sample: costly (time and money)
- Convenience
- Small non-representative samples
- Implications for publishing
Number two(A): Use Existing Datasets
Advantages
- very cost effective
- most of the work is done for you
- large surveys (probability sample)
- probably tried and test
- publishable
Disadvantage
- availability of questions (limited to questions they decided to ask their
original intentions)
