What is the question type for participants to input demographic information (i.e., text) such as country of birth?

Thank you!

I would use a Dropdown. You can then add answers using the Quick Add feature. Find a list of countries that you want to support and paste them into your Quick Add answers section.

Dear Kobaltz,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

However, there is demographic information that needs to be entered by the participants. Is there another way?

Which "other" way are you thinking of? Usually you use e.g.
- a date question for the date of birth
- a list dropdown questions for the birth country
- a numeric question for teh current age
- a gender question for the gender
...and so on.

Dear Mazi,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

One question involving a text answer might be the name of the participant.
