I've looked at this file. I assume it is the question field you have
updated. There are some issues:

1. Questions are quite long still
2. Includes "What weight do you attach to a " on most questions. But
we already say at top of page what are relative importance. so rather
than having a question we just need a short human readable description
of that item.
3. Questions could still be more friendly ... e.g. "How important,
relative to the other economic measures, is total economic output per
capita to you?" - could this not be: "GDP (total amount produced in a
country in a year)" or similar ...

Have now managed to track down this issue and fix (I hope):


If you notice this again please let me know.
