OK nothing that we really don’t know in this study, except that I haven’t seen a lot of studies that recruit via Craigslist. Here’s the scoop:
“The present study collected data using the World Health Organization’s WHOQOL-BREF instrument across four different types of data collection methods which included Amazon.com’s Mechanical Turk, Craigslist.org, college students completing the survey online, and college students completing a survey in a traditional face-to-face format. Feldt tests comparing observed Cronbach’s alphas to alphas from a published validation study and confirmatory factor analyses corroborated the use of online data collection for quality of life for the general public and college students.”
However, there was a lack of internal consistency in the face to face format for college students.
Craigslist? Really? I guess you can get people to work for free?
