Why should you be concerned with errors resulting from questionnaire design?

We would be concerned with errors that result from questionnaire designs because the responses to the questions are essentially only as effective or ineffective as the design of the questions. If there are errors in our questionnaire design, the research gathered from those questions will also be erroneous. We can't extract reliable data from questionnaires that are designed with errors. As with any other process or design, as the error rates increase, the reliability of the data also increased. It is therefore important to design questionnaires that are free from errors. By doing so, our output is reliable and we can begin to form reliable conclusions based on the results of our questionnaires.
