Socio Demographic Questionnaire


A socio demographic questionnaire is developed for purposes of gauging the social status of a specific community or society. The formulated questions are usually subjective in nature and gauge things such as individual educational level, one’s income, assets and occupational status. The questionnaire is also used to identify the respondent’s age, gender, health status and racial group. Such questionnaires are commonly used in national household surveys for purposes of establishing the social status of an identified community. During the construction of the questionnaire, consultations are done to ensure that the survey questions are valid and acceptable in the target community.
