Pinewood Derby Demographics Survey

Post by Vitamin K » Fri Feb 26, 2016 3:29 pm

Hello Derby fans,

So one thing that I've been curious about is the demographic makeup of the Pinewood Derby hobbyist population. I've yet to see any actual work done towards gathering this data, so I thought I'd make an attempt at it.

The following link leads to a Google Form that has some basic survey questions. They're mostly multiple-choice, and I doubt the whole thing will take more than a few minutes. All replies are anonymous, so I won't have any way to track anybody that chooses to submit data.

The form is here:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1gXAqCK ... 9i9EnCiI_Q

Those of you that frequent multiple Pinewood Derby forums or groups might notice that I've crossposted. This is in an attempt to collect as much data as possible. Obviously, only fill it out once per person.

I plan to keep the survey open for two weeks, at which point I will close the survey and publicly share the data. My hope is that it will give us a better picture of our population, and possibly offer some ideas for how we might grow and improve the hobby.

Yes, I will make all of the results public once I close the survey.

Okay, the survey is closed! We've had 85 people responding.

The results are here!

The data needs some clean-up and normalization, but I wanted to give you the raw results. If you click in the lower right corner of the spreadsheet, the "Explore" button will give you some options for visualizations.

Thanks to all who participated!

Spoke a little too soon.

Retracting results for now until I can process them to prevent any unintentional leakage of sensitive info.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
