do you believe some surveys discriminate - wrongly - between age groups?

A friend on a different site says she and her much younger sister get picked differently. Surveys she is tagged for and her sister isn't seem to assume older people buy/live in way other than those younger. They seem to think older means you do less sport/active pastimes, being younger means you have less discrimination in many areas. It's annoying them. Do you ever start a survey and get told you don't fit the profile and wonder if it's because you are older/younger? Or as if the survey may be making inaccurate judgements based on some of your profile? Does that bother you if so?

I've asked a number of friends about this today, between them they belong to near 8-9 survey sites, and most feel surveys seem to be age-focused even when it doesn't match the subject. I don;t think Toluna is, or not that I've ever noticed, but it does seem to be so to a major extent elsewhere. Reply

Years ago, when surveys were done door to door, the similar occurred. We had to get different numbers in different specific age groups, this was what the client requested.
There is only one survey company that I do surveys for that often gives a token amount if screened out early.

Yes, it is annoying, & happens quite a lot. They should be asking a wide range of people for their thoughts, but sometimes seem to target people that will give favourable answers that their clients will like. Reply
