MRF Demographic Survey (please add your data)
Posted by: archipirata
Date: February 19, 2013 04:05PM
I am trying to get an overall picture of the users of our forum community. I have created a quick 10 question anonymous survey. I will create a series of charts so we can get a quick visual reference of the users distribution by age, location, profession, mac usage, etc. It would be great if I could get input from as many as possible. The link is below and again NO PERSONAL DATA is needed, it is completely anonymous.

Here is the link: [kwiksurveys.com]

I would like to keep it going for a few days.

Thanks Forum Friends!

Scott (archi)

Sample Question:

Housing type?

A. house
B. apt
C. condo
D. BASEMENT
E. other

I added "basement" given our special user base. smiling smiley

I think we've already established that this group is quite old. I wouldn't be surprised if the mean is 50 years old.

Ask an mod directly to sticky it

Arch,

For the housing section, you may want to change Condo to Coop/Condo. Whole there are some significant differences between the types of housing, they are typically clustered together.

Wish all "surveys" were that easy. Done. And I think you're right about the age, although I prefer to think of it as maturity. Then again, based on some of the threads and posts I see here, perhaps maturity isn’t the best word to describe it. ;)

135 responses so far and some interesting trends. Will make the results public here when I close the survey within 48 hours. Thanks for the suggested edits but it would skew the results and would have to be restarted to continue, so maybe for next time. We'll just go with the selections what we have for now.

I'm more interested in the non-age demographics, though I expect to be on the younger side of the totals.

I admit, though, that I did not like having to be an 'other'...
