Biased survey question

Biased survey question

Bias refers to that quality of a measurement device that tends to result in a misrepresentation, in a particular direction, of what is being measured. Can you think of a biased question in a survey research? Please state a real (with reference) or imaginary biased question on a survey research that misrepresented the results of the research.


Surveys are a powerful tool that many researchers use to gather information, analyze, and formulate strategies. Conducting a survey is beneficial in many ways; it is cost efficient, extensive, flexible and dependable. Moreover, there are many methods of study research (online surveys, paper surveys, and phone surveys). Although it has many benefits and sounds like a great way of researching, it does leave room for people to misinterpret the question that is being asked or encourages volunteers to answer in a certain way. A researcher should be cautious to not use biased items and terms. In order to prevent biased questions a researcher should remove unnecessary information, balance the question (if two things are being compared), and balance the survey, keep opinions and biases to themselves. Ultimately drawing a conclusion from a biased survey is a misuse of extrapolation and defeats the purpose of conducing a factual, clear research.

This is my example of a fabricated biased question on a survey research regarding abortion:


1. Do you agree or disagree with this statement: “ Women worldwide have the right to decide to abort or not”

2. 2. Many people say that abortion lads to long-term emotional and physical health issues. Do you agree?

3. 3. An abortion is fine as long as you got raped, right?

It shoud be original work, and should be written like EX and follow the question well..
