This is real and is a survey for a college project.  I have spoken to BashkovaAnna on the other site and I recommended that she post this here.  Please, help her out.  It will only take 2 minutes.  Send her a PM if you want.  She only has 1 week left to gather the data and turn in the project. 

Thanks.

I'm still skeptical. I'll need more proof that this is real before answering.

Give a false age, then.  That is the only personal information that she is asking for.  Just make it in the same age range.

Is the 0 to 13 thing a list-type, do you know Jroa, or can I apply 0 to 13 on any of them. i.e. Does each one need a unique number or can they all be 13, for example.
NOTHING TO SEE HERE. IGNORE RAMA SET.

I used each of the numbers.  I think that is what you are supposed to do.

I personally don't like this assignment. It seems too narrow. I think all of these are acceptable families and labeling them based on most to least seems misleading for any kind of study. "Typical" and "worst" are not really on the same spectrum. What may be more typical in America doesn't mean it's a better family.

If you don`t want tell me your age you can ignore this question. But please answer the main two. It takes you 1 minute to give me your associations and 2 minutes to number these types of families. You can do it at random if you don`t want to think for a long time :)
I need this information for my diploma which is called "Концепт "семья" в русскоязычной и англоязычной культурах". I`ve already had 40 russian replies, of course it was easier to question them but now I need your replies.

It is my task to find out what is more typical in America..And what about associations?

Ok, so just one more question.  I don't understand why the nuclear family unit is listed there since that encompasses a lot of the listed options. Are the nuclear and extended unit options supposed to be their own question separate from the more specific situations?

Nuclear family is used as an opposition to extended. It is important for me what is more typical for you nuclear or extended, family with 3 or more children or childless, matriarchal or patriarchal and so on

Female, 22 years old

4-5 words: Trust, sacrifice, unconditional, burden, safe. Kind of a mixed bag, but. :P

The next one's a little harder for me...they're all equally family to me, I don't think any one is more than the other, so...I'll just list them in order of what's most "common" around here, I guess.

13 Family with a small number of children
12 Nuclear family
11 Two-parent family
10 Extended family
9 Single-parent family
8 Family with three or more children
7 Childless family
6 Heterosexual family
5 Monogamous family
4 Patriarchal family
3 Matriarchal family
2 Same-sex family
1 Polygamous family
0 Polyamorous family


Good luck! Hopefully more people will respond to help. :]

Snupes, you shouldn't lie about your sex like that. This is serious.
