Although it’s true that, especially with behaviors that might be viewed as socially undesirable, misreporting can happen, however, this misreporting happens much less frequently when the survey is anonymous and can be conducted independently (as our survey is). Further, extensive survey research has shown that most people are actually quite truthful on surveys! By comparing this survey to other similar surveys and getting similar results (called triangulation), we also have more confidence that our results are close to the truth. So, although there is always a margin of error, we feel confident that the overall results provide us with an accurate indication of parental attitudes and behaviors.
