The report sets out the full text of the PULS questionnaire along with commentary on the theoretical background to questions, rationale for their inclusion alongside other resources and references supporting the questionnaire.
We wanted to make the questionnaire available in advance of any survey findings as part of our commitment to open science, and so others can draw upon the PULS approach.
We think there are some great new ideas and approaches to capturing legal need and legal capability in the questionnaire and would love you to use or adapt it in full or part, and hope you find it useful!
Even if you are not planning to conduct research yourself, it will give you an idea of what we are asking and the questions you might ask of the data – and yes, we will be making the data publicly available.
Meanwhile fieldwork for the PULS survey continues all around Victoria. It’s a lengthy process, but both fieldworkers and respondents are enjoying taking part and appreciate the importance of the project. I’ll have more news to report in coming months.
