    The stated goal of your survey is: "to determine how an individual’s educational background relates to his or her career choice."

    I don't see anything on your survey that tells what the individual's career choice is. Am I missing something?

  • Business Research and writing -

    I agree with Ms. Sue. I see the survey questions and choices, but no data.
