1) What is www.gnomisas.com;

It is the service that carried out surveys via the web. The surveys concern your business, your profession, politics, trade unionism, education, economy, market movements, health, ecology, society, etc. The presentation of the results and statistical diagrams are generated automatically by www.gnomisas.com. The service allows the originator of the survey to create the questionnaire, which will be answered via the Internet by the selected sample (closed survey) or from any number of different non-selected individuals (open survey).

2) To whom addressed the service www.gnomisas.com and who can use it?

It is aimed at everyone (individual, company or organization, etc) who wants to carry out a survey on a particular topic.

3) What is the difference between an open and a closed survey?

In open surveys, anyone can answer any questionnaire which is on the web pages of www.gnomisas.com. In closed surveys, people who will participate in answering the questionnaire have been choosen by the originator of the survey. Our office sends the requested number of codes to be distributed by the originator of the survey to the choosen individuals in order to gain access to the system and answer the questionnaire.

4) What are the advantages of the service www.gnomisas.com and why should I use it?

  • Has low charge.

  • Surveys are not based on prefabricated questionnaires, as in other similar types of web services. They are created easily and simply by the originator of the survey without requiring specific knowledge of computer use.

  • With a type of survey called ''closed'', the originator of the survey can choose the sample that will answer the questionnaire. Statistically, this is particularly important.

  • In the classical method, where the answers are given over the telephone, the process has some drawbacks, such as: a) usually, he who is called to answer the questionnaire is not prepared to do so. His thought remains where he had been interrupted. So hurry to finish as soon as possible, to continue his work. Therefore the answers given during a process that usually ends in 5 to 20 minutes are rather careless. With the web service www.gnomisas.com, the participants decide themselves when to respond. Their attention is focused on the question, they have the comfort of time and can break and continue answering the questionnaire any time later on. b) There is no anonymity in telephone surveys. Using www.gnomisas.com, anonymity is fully respected c) During a telephone survey, the originator has no picture for the emerging trend in the questions that have been answered. Using www.gnomisas.com, the originator of the survey knows at any time the formation of the results while the survey is underway. So, he knows the trend that gradually formed in every question until the survey will be terminated. d) If the originator of the survey has its own website, then he can embed a hyperlink to direct the visitor of his page, straight to the questionnaire. This feature does not exist when using the classical method.

5) Does the pc of the originator of the survey need special equipment? Does the pc of the respondent, needs special equipment in order to use www.gnomisas.com?

No specific knowledge needed. The handling is very easy and simple.

7) How much will I be charhed? On what does it depend? How to pay?

The payable amount is determined automatically by the system and depends on the number of questions, the type of the survey (open or closed) and on the number of the days that the survey will be underway. The originator of the survey should deposit the required amount, in accordance with the instructions of the system.

8) Can someone answer the same questionnaire several times?

In closed surveys, each code permits a unique participation. In open surveys, the ip address is recorded and cookies are used in the web browser to prevent multiple participation.

Yes, you can.

10) How the originator can achieve greater public participation in the survey?
