At the end of your procedure instead of the select statement you have there now try:
SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY() as SurveyID

I'm have trouble tonight because I messed up again.  I meant:

Also have you made sure that it's inserting the rows correctly?
SELECT @@IDENTITY() as SurveyID

SELECT CAST(SCOPE_IDENTITY() AS INT)  as SurveyID

In your procedure Maybe?

Were you able to verify that the row is created in the tbl_Survey table?

Ok, so let's take a couple steps back.  If the row isn't making it in the table then we need to start there.  The first step would be to verify that you're providing all of the information correctly to the stored procedure.  You need to manually run the stored proc in query analyzer and see if/where its erroring.  From there you'll be able to see what data is missing or not of the correct type which is causing the error.

I tested in the procedure and it worked. Not sure why the cs is not.

When you say the procedure worked do you mean that the row was inserted in to the table and the identity was correctly returned?  If so then there must be something in the cs code that isn't assigning the variables the same when you run it from query analyzer.

>>I tested in the procedure and it worked. Not sure why the cs is not.<<
That is because the errror is not coming from your stored procedure.  Here is the reason as posted by cdaly33 #24417533 (no points please):
"The first step would be to verify that you're providing all of the information correctly to the stored procedure."

You are supplying the wrong value to the parameter.  For example, @ParticipantID is integer and txtParticipantID.Text is non-integer.

Unfortunately, until you post your stored procedure sp_SurveyInsertInfo all we can do is make wild guesses as to the exact problem.

Perhaps you overlooked my comment:
"Unfortunately, until you post your stored procedure sp_SurveyInsertInfo all we can do is make wild guesses as to the exact problem."

So perhaps you can post your Stored Procedure.

You are absolutely right.  What baffles me then is why nobody pointed out that the author is missing a parameter.

Have you verified that the values for the following are in fact integers?
txtParticipantID.Text                    
txtEvalVisitID.Text                      
txtGender.Text                          
txtAge.Text                              
txtRace.Text                            
txtPrimLanguage.Text                    
txtMonthsPregnant.Text                  
txtPregnantTimes.Text

in the database it is is int for all
for the ParticipantID it is coming from the page  from the other page as in the postback as:
PostBackUrl='<%#"evaluation.aspx?r="+Eval("ParticipantID")+"&"+"e="+Eval("EvaluationVisitID")  %>'
?r=20&e=39

these:
txtGender.Text                          
txtAge.Text                              
txtRace.Text                            
txtPrimLanguage.Text                    
txtMonthsPregnant.Text                  
txtPregnantTimes.Text      
they are numeric

quote "in the database it is is int for all"

      @OtherLive_with as nvarchar(50),
      @OtherContraception as nvarchar(50),

These are two non int fields

on the database the nvarchar of 50 are:
PrimaryLanguage
OtherLive_with
OtherContraception

the problem is they all except NULL but SuveyID
 maybe the problem is that some fields are empty ? when I submit?

You are missing my point. I know they are integers in the database.  I am asking if you have verified that the values passed to the stored procedure are in fact integers.

Finally have you added the missing parameter?
