The sample questionnaire on the following pages shows the standard questions asked at all the selected universities in ASEAN member nations. All of the substantive questions were asked in all nations. Citizenship, sex, age, year in university, and main subject of study were included in all questionnaires. Other demographic questions were included to fit local conditions in each nation. Subjects of study in most cases were Social Sciences and Humanities (Subject 1), Sciences (Subject 2), Engineering (Subject 3) and Other (Subject 4). However, in some cases, such as the vocational-technical universities (Singapore Polytechnic, Saint John's University), a different distribution of subjects was used as relevant to that university; the purpose of the question was for enumerators to collect a diversity of responses, with no one subject representing more than 50 per cent of the sample.
Two versions of the questionnaire, a List and a Map version were administered at each university. The only difference between the two versions was the second substantive question (Q2). Half of the respondents were given the List version of Q2 and the other half the Map version.
The 2014 Questionnaire replicated all questions from the 2007 Questionnaire, except that Q13 was new, replacing a poorly worded question from the 2007 Questionnaire. Question 19, one word descriptions, and Question 20, sixty randomized triads, were newly added for the 2014 Questionnaire.
