3 Questions Survey Now Closed
This morning I closed the 3 Questions survey. Thank you to all who participated. Also, I’d like to thank Stephanie Zvan from Freethought Blogs who posted an article promoting my survey, which resulted in 100+ more respondents than I would have had otherwise.
Now comes the arduous task of sorting through the data, but before I do, here are some preliminary statistics from the survey.
The survey was open for 3 weeks, and represents 328 responses from members of 21 Countries; The USA, Canada, Mexico, Ireland, The UK, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, The Czech Republic, Sweden, Greece, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Malaysia, The Philippines, Papua New Guinea, and Japan. This is far more than I had originally intended to gather, and from a much wider audience geographically than I had hoped for.
60% of respondents agreed that their name could be published with their answers. It’s heartening to see so many willing to have their names associated with their opinions on religion and atheism. There would once have been a time when this was socially unacceptable, but this shows that times and attitudes have changed more recently.
Over the coming weeks I will post my findings here on the blog. since there are well over 300 responses, it would be impractical of me to post all the answers here, but instead, I will try to glean some interesting information from them, and post the highlight responses, the ones that really stand out for me.
If you want to see some examples of the kinds of things people wrote, see the responses under Stephanie Zvan’s post here.
Thanks again for your help, and keep checking back for the response posts.
