AEPF ETHICS PERCEPTIONS SURVEY 2018
1 / 8
This survey is designed to measure the ‘state-of-ethics’ in society, organisations and professional institutions and evaluate people’s propensity to report unethical behaviour and their experiences of doing so. It is important that, in answering the questions, you bear in mind that ethics is not just about fraud and corruption. Please take the broader context of ethics, which includes issues such as equality, human rights, safety and the natural environment, into consideration.
As your responses are completely anonymous, we encourage you to be absolutely honest when responding to the statements in the survey, without fear or favour. The results of the survey is intended to provide us with a true reflection of the state of ethics in South Africa.
This survey is composed of two sections.
Section 1 is a biographical section where we ask questions about you for research purposes. information is used to categorise the data (i.e., whether men and women score the same on certain questions, or whether people of different job-levels encounter unethical conduct to a different degree) and cannot be linked to you directly since you provide no identifying information such as a name or identification number. This section is composed of 10 multiple choice questions and should take about 5 minutes to complete.
Section 2 has 29 statements that you need to respond to by indicating your level of agreement from ‘Strongly Disagree’ to ‘Strongly Agree’. This section should take you approximately 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
