I'm having a couple of issues with the survey - Q3 I have completed the 'other' box but it is still asking me to complete the question, probably as there isn't a tick box for 'Other', just a text box.
Also Q6 - it's not letting me put more than one tick in the same column, but all of my ticks need to go in one column. I've noted this in the 'other' box underneath, but I don't know if you have any way of fixing this before many others come and answer?
I've submitted anyway, but thought I'd let you know that others might experience similar problems!
I've added an extra option for 'other' on Q3 but unfortunately can't change Q6 because it already has responses and I'd have to go back and clear all the data. Would it be possible to add any extra into the comment box at the bottom? I'll just have to sort it out when I go through the data at the end
Not sure you've got your buckets for childcare costs right... every working mum I know would have to tick the last bucket....eg 40hrs of a nanny * £11 ph gross blows your last bucket out of the water, and most people I know with nannies use them for up to 60 hours and at a much higher gross hourly rates (in London). Means your survey results will be skewed toward those who use other forms of childcare (because you will otherwise have to make some very sweeping assumptions about where the median of the top bucket lies).
Just a couple of comments (and I did comment in the box for question 6). You may have been better to ask for a "typical" week (or month) rather than the past week. I only say this because you won't get a true reflection if someone is on annual leave or other leave or had a break from childcare for some other reason (sickness or whatever). Our dd2 has started school and normally I would make good use of the wraparound but this week has been unusual.
I'm going to close this tomorrow night - thank you so much to everyone who filled it in. I've got 98 responses - would be great to make it an even 100 but if not, I think I've just got to draw the line at some point and begin to process the data or my project will never be finished!
