Invitation to participate in an online survey

Hello. My name is Nikmatul Adha, a resident of USJ 1. I am carrying out a study on how far people participate in urban planning process and in local organizational activities. This survey is part of my doctoral thesis. In this survey, I would like to explore the factors that may influence one's tendency to play an active role in planning one's neighbourhood such as the feeling of sense of belonging, the prevalence of neighbourliness spirit and civic consciousness. This survey also explores residents' view on the needs and importance of playing an active role in determining the shape and the environment of the neighbourhood.

This survey is only to be answered by Subang Jaya residents (SS12-19, USJ 1-21, PJS 7, 9, 11). Filling in the questionnaire mostly involves just ticking boxes to indicate your reply and it will take less than 15 minutes of your time to complete. I have done the on-the-ground survey in September 2008, with the help of my research assistants. If you have answered this survey before, please do not proceed to answer this online survey.

I hope that you will find completing the survey intersting and very much hope that you will be willing to help me.


Thank you so much.


Sincerely,
Nikmatul Adha Nordin

Dear Forumers,

I would like to express my most sincere gratitude to those of you who have answered my online survey. For those who have not, the survey is still available online (<a href="http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=qakNDfhW55Oia4XDECWSzA_3d_3d">Click Here to take survey</a>).

I received some feedback from the respondents that they were not happy to reveal their personal information in the survey and some were not happy to indicate their "race". The reason I included those questions were because I need to do some profiling on active residents. But if you feel uncomfortable in asnwering some of the questions, you can just leave them blank.

Thank you so much for your help.
