Low male respondent rate on step parent survey

Families in Transition – Couples in Repartnered (Step) Families

I still have my online survey for stepfamily adults open. I am closing it at the end of August.

This is a last request to see if there are more men in your networks who would be interested in doing it. Only a third of my participants have been men. And it would be great to have some more fathers and stepfathers do it.

Any adult who is repartnered and has children from a previous relationship (theirs or partners) in the home for part of the week can do the survey online. It does take at least 20 minutes however. And some people take longer.

When someone is ready to do it (has the time), then they can click on the link below and they will find themselves in a secure university site.

  1. Claire has been seeking input on this for nearly a year now. If you have a step=parenbting relationship why not participate.

  2. Low male respondent rate is probably because there arent enough of us who have the luxury of having our children in our house for part of the week!
