Selecting Questionnaire Items for a specific Population Post COVID


This paper describes a study of retired independent women in participative co-living. The objective of the study is to create an inventory questionnaire to be used in the selection of prospective members of a co-living arrangement in Canada. Qualitative research methods were used comprising textual analysis of participants’ journals and related documents like the Charter of the Babayagas House in Paris and documents in the public domain as well as established wellbeing questionnaires found in a literature search. Based on the qualities and characteristics uncovered, several items were generated which were found to align with items in well-established wellbeing questionnaires. Apart from the questionnaire items, related areas of concern are discussed. Overall, interesting aspects that would be valuable to researchers examining similar contexts emerged and comments on the relative importance and relevance of questions for a number of items are included in the findings. Aspects of the participants’ activities which were deemed relevant are also included.
