An Internet Survey to Understand Clients
Besides the interviews with clients, police forces and prostitutes, the research foresaw an internet survey to collect further details on/by clients. For this purpose, a Web questionnaire was created and put online from 1 November 2006 to 7 May 2007. It was available on the ISMU site1 in five languages (Dutch, English, Italian, Romanian and Swedish) and it was “advertised” by banners on specific forums in each of the four countries of the study.2 It should be noted that in Italy the survey was both posted on a forum3 by the administrator and posted by one of the team's researchers.4 Moreover, in one specific case, while criticizing the questionnaire, one administrator mentioned it on his Website.5
