A few months ago, readers of this blog gave helpful comments on the first draft of the Caplan-Somin survey about who in government has power over what.

Now we’re ready to pre-test.

If you’ve got the time, please take this survey at http://www.bcaplan.com/cgi-bin/polres.cgi, then tell us how we could improve it. Feel free to post comments on the blog, or just use the mail form at the end of the survey.

Much oblige!

P.S. Ideally, this survey would have a bunch of short pages instead of one long page, but I’m not a good enough Perl programmer to make this happen. Any Perl gurus out there who could quickly re-write this as a multi-page survey? Lunch is on me if you do. 🙂
