ECB Survey: Banknote Quality etc.

Post by tabbs » Fri Dec 06, 2013 12:48 am

The European Central Bank currently has a few questions for you. :) At the ECB website there is a survey "on the quality of euro banknotes in circulation", with questions about the overall condition of the €50 and the new €5 notes, about your preferred means of payment, etc. Have a look here: http://www.ecb.europa.eu/euro/banknotes ... ty.en.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Nice short survey . By giving 'good' answers questions 3 and 5 were left behind. ..

Warning for privacy freaks: questions 7, 8, 9 and 10 are irrelevant (gender, country, age, occupation). Don't start taking this survey if you don't want to answer those.

Q3and 5 are questions if you answer acceptable quality or less.

@ds5 there are other concerns about your privacy ,you re only to vote once per IP :-)

How is this a privacy issue? Did you have to enter any identifiable points about yourself (like name, address, e-mail, social security number) or do you have any reason to believe they will find out if you do not answer these questions correctly?

And now they do have my IP address, but they will be very puzzled when they see that it belongs to a US company.

Sure, you should be concerned about privacy (I know I am), but this is a bit silly.

Granted I'm overly paranoid after the Snowden leakage, OTOH your IP being US based isn't precisely a dead end. Plus, what does my gender/age/occupation tell the ECB about the quality of my banknotes? I always feel pissed when I'm spending some time to provide some feedback then at the end I'm asked about this irrelevant crap.

Needless to say, I didn't finish the survey.

Then do not answer - it's that simple. Please, no need to get vulgar. As a reader of a study, be it about the use of cash or about what parties people vote for, I do find it helpful to learn about significant trends and differences. Is it mostly elderly people whose preferred means of payment is cash, are people in country X different in that regard from people in country Y, and so on.

What I found odd about this survey, however: There was a question about what means of payment I would most likely use for an amount of €30. (Or so; don't remember exactly.) Umm, for me that depends on the circumstances. So I picked "cash" - after all, I wish the euro notes a long life. ;) But depending on where and what I buy, the answer might as well have been a debit or a credit card, or cash or direct debit ...
