- Top research tip – When designing a questionnaire, always try to think about how the results will look once the data is collected – for example – do you really need the actual % increase in time that each respondent has spent doing exercise since lockdown or is it just the % of people that have spent more time doing exercise since lockdown (compared to before)?
- Why does research make the world go round? – Research is at the centre of everything that goes on in the world, from privately owned businesses to the NHS. Think about all the stats bouncing around at the moment that are informing Government actions on the Coronavirus, helping businesses through this time of change and even allowing Coronavirus patients to track their symptoms. I’m sure we would be in a drastically different world right now without the help of Research.

- Top research tip: Work backwards. When it comes to getting the most out of your research, sometimes starting with the answers you want, rather than the questions, can lead to a better outcome. This can be applied to writing the questionnaire or discussion guide but also to the overall project itself (when thinking about the goals of your research). Question writing is an art, which we are the experts in. Tell us what you want to know and we will show you how to get there.
