Help with Thesis, short survey please!
« on: February 08, 2007, 06:27:04 PM »
Hey y'all.

I'm writing my senior thesis (undergrad) about the effects of two cultural variables on legal systems, with an emphasis on Latin America (Costa Rica, in specific). Part of it includes data analysis from a "random" sample survey. Well obviously none of this is too scientific because I can't control all my variables as much as I'd like.

But I don't have enough respondents. If y'all are sitting around, have some time, or just feel like being nice, would you please fill out my little survey? It should take you about 10 - 12 minutes (max!) and all the questions are easy to answer.

Thank you!!

Edited to add: I am interested in respondents from three "groups" - 1. Costa Rica, 2. USA, 3. the rest of Latin America. If you dont fall into any of those three, I want your answers anyway!

I'm not in your legal system.  Do I still count?
J, if you didn't bring enough penis for everyone, you shouldn't have brought any penis at all.

What do you mean? Anyone can answer, no matter where in the world you are (there is a question dealing with that). And I would be tickled pink if you would help me out!

Done. Interesting survey.

Lol, I'm glad you thought so.  Soon it will be time to cruch the numbers, which will be not so much fun!


Thank you to all of you who have responded (and to IrrX for giving this thread a little bump), it's going to really help me out. Already I have about 15 new respondents, which proves there are definitely some kind souls on LSD.

Cheers guys.

Thank you! And congratulations again, bet it feels good.

And btw, at the rate y'all are going, I might actually hit my "100 respondents" target! Too bad y'all don't really constitute a "random sample" - but close enough. I tried handing out the links to people at school and I got a measly 8 respondents in a week.  :'(

Done! :-) I thought a couple of the questions were slightly confusing.... but then, I'm easily confused. :-P I hope I didn't mess anything up on that account.

Good luck!

Done.

For the contract problems I actually started listing the types of damages to which the individuals were entitled.

And I think I answered the jurisprudence question along the same lines that it is actually done (proving, once and for all [maybe], that law school removes all personal beliefs.)
Let me show you Derelicte. It is a fashion, a way of life inspired by the very homeless, the vagrants, the crack whores that make this wonderful city so unique.

They're break-dance fighting.
