Name recognition survey

02 May 2019

The survey is part of a King’s PhD project and aims to see whether people have perceptions of sex and ethnicity about names, and if so, what these perceptions are. It asks people to determine the sex and ethnicity of a list of different names, and then provide some information about themselves.
(Tip: Use a laptop/desktop computer, and select the option to view names as separate questions rather than in the table format to prevent scrolling up/down for table headings).
