With a new year come new year’s resolutions. I have been working as a survey methodologist for about the last 5 years. I teach and I do research. Teaching gives instant rewards, or at least instant feedback. I like that. Doing research is however a different matter. It is a slow and sometimes agonizing process of muddling through (for me).
Studies remain in review forever, sometimes don’t make it at all into a publication, while some of my ideas or views just never make onto paper at all.
