Today I received a "National Employment Survey 2009 Employee Questionaire". I am obliged by statute to fill it out. Now I agree these statistics are valuable, however the collection method
1) Print and post me the form
2) Me to fill out
3) Post it back
4) CSO staff to scan it in (manually typing if necessary)
Is from the 1980's. Simple fact is that anyone who needs to can get web access. Yet the PS resist any change, their excuse for this one is likely a bleeding heart variant of
"Well not everyone has Internet access"
Fact is that these days it is more incovenient for most people to get postal access.
