In the past, the concept of free questionnaires was not as popular as it is today. Previously, a lot of effort and resources were put into formulating and printing questionnaires since they were printed on paper. Even during telephone interviews, the respondent’s answers needed to be documented on paper. With the advent of electronic documentation however, the cost factor is no longer applicable. As such, free questionnaires are now available on the web for free download. The catch to this however is that some websites require the user to credit them for the questionnaire use, or at time, the questionnaire needs customization in order to meet the specific needs of the user.
