Research 101. Rewarding participants can negate the neutrality of your respondents. You have been nice to them, they will want to be nice to you in return and tell you what they think you want to hear, and not tell you what they think you don't want to hear.

It's also extremely common to pay participants in sociological surveys. Better to have slightly skewed data than no data at all.

Good idea! We have prepared and tested a questionnaire of living experiences of foreigners in Kunming, as a complementary method of collecting data in addition to interviews. We sincerely invite you to complete the questionnaire and accept the interview. Thanks very much!

You can find the questionnaire here:
