A Dynamic Microtask Approach to Collecting and Organizing Citizens’ Opinions
Citizens’ opinions are important information resources for democratic local governments. Since a mere collection of opinions is not easy to analyze, the collected opinions should be organized, so that the governments can effectively analyze it. This paper proposes a scheme where citizens take part in organizing and classifying opinions while answering the questionnaire. In the scheme, we collect citizen opinions in a structured form, with a microtask interface that changes the list of choices dynamically. Our system has been being used by Tsukuba city for several real-world opinion-collection projects.
