@CodeNonprofit I checked the NPTFG survey: I don't think is bad, only focused on the specific case of the use of social media... I think NPTFG would like to focus on consultancy on social media for NGO's/nonprofit?
Not a benchmark for the FCC project as FCC interest is totally different...
And here an example of why the sampling design aspect is relevant, @CodeNonprofit:
One serious problem of the NPTFG survey is that many people in the same organisation can answer the survey. That is a situation that will pose serious challenges in the analysis. If there are many respondents from the same organisation answering the survey, which one should I take? Worst: what if the information given by several of them disagree? Better to have only one that you DON'T know if wrong but you can assume it is ok, than having several of them and not knowing what to choose!!!
Therefore data per organisation is better to be UNIQUE to avoid discrepancies: ONE organisation, ONE questionnaire only.
