Methodology and Limitations
For this project, we surveyed 1,013 parents with children up to 17 years old. 659 of those parents had children under the age of 13. Parents’ ages ranged from 21 to 69 years old and were comprised of 49% who identify as men, 50% as women, and less than 1% as nonbinary. Respondents were asked a series of questions via Amazon’s Mechanical MTurk platform.
Issues with self-reported surveys include, but are not limited to, telescoping, selective memory, and lying. To reduce the number of false answers, attention-check questions were asked, and those failing these questions were disqualified from the survey and their answers were excluded.
