What are the double negative, double barreled, and leading questions that should be avoided in survey? Use at least one example to discuss each of them
Since the double negative questions; make use of the two “no”
words in the same sentence leading to confusion and they must be
avoided in a survey. For example; do you agree that boys who play
football are not uncommon?
Better phrasing can be: Is it common for boys to play football, according to your opinion?
A double-barreled question is a type of an informal fallacy, committed when we ask a question that is regarding more than one issue, yet it allows only one answer. Thus it should be avoided in a survey. For example; Please tell me whether you would vote for or against a candidate supporting a reduction in the federal spending on education and welfare?
