Does numbering survey questions affect survey completion?



  • Does displaying the number of the question in front of the question on a survey affect completion rates in any way?

    E.g.,

    1. Lorem ipsum?
    2. Dolor sit amet?
    3. Consectetur adipiscing elit?

    vs.

    Lorem ipsum?

    Dolor sit amet?

    Consectetur adipiscing elit?



  • I don't believe adding numbers to the question will affect completion rates.

    But I do believe that it is good practice to show a progress bar or some sort of indication of how long or how many questions/pages there are in total.

    This will let the user feel like they are making progress.
