IRE Demographics Survey

IllarenIllaren Posts: 7Member ✭✭ - Stalwart
Hey everyone! I'm in the middle of a statistics class right now, and was assigned a fairly open-ended project to create and draw conclusions from a survey. Since I've always been curious about what types of people make up our community, I thought this might be a good opportunity to learn more about the demographics of our playerbase beyond what forum polls generally allow for. All responses are completely anonymous, and if there's a question you'd prefer not to answer, you can just leave it blank. Any and all responses would be a huge help!

    @Illaren hope you post the results! I was sad when I got to the "How much have you spent total..."

    I expected more of the survey to be questions like the last one.

    I didn't feel like calculating even an estimate of how much I've spent on Achaea so I just put something along the lines of "Too much."
  • ShaydeShayde Posts: 342Member ✭✭✭✭✭ - Grand Achaean
    Yep I'm done too :)

    Luckily for me, almost all of my spending came from one month, which I heard about for many months after when my wife saw the bank statement. So it was easy to do the math.

    HAHA..  Brings back so many memories.

    Completed!
  • TelendriethTelendrieth Posts: 146Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Done! I don't honestly know the value spent, so I just gave the retire value. Some of it was purchased, other bits were accrued through marketing. 

    Also: Lettuce, Guacamole, Bacon, Tomato. 
  • TysandrTysandr Posts: 203Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Bacon is clearly the best.

    Thank you guys for all the responses, up to 86 now! In retrospect there are a few questions I wish I had added, but ah well. And I can definitely post some results when I'm done for the curious.
  • EheneEhene Posts: 80Member ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Whee! All done.

    Just hit 100 responses, which is the limit for Surveymonkey without a subscription. If anyone else wants to take it, I created an identical one, so here's the new link:

    Okay, I'm not going to do too much with the data yet, since I'm still getting some responses and don't want to end up redoing it all in another day or two. But for a few quick numbers:

    Average age: 29.1
    Average money spent: 3172
    Median money spent: 1000
    Average hrs/week: 21.5
    Player gender: 67.1% male, 32.3% female, .6% other
    Character gender: 59.8% male, 39.5% female, .6% other
    27.9% of players are LGBT

    Really? That's surprising. I always thought Achaea's male/female pop was pretty 50 50.

    Then again, maybe a good section of the females avoid the forums.

    I helped with the player vs character gender discrepancy! I'm a hero!

    also nearly 28% of those 100 are LGBT, that's rather impressive IMO!

    That was my thought, upon seeing the numbers. I'd also guess there's a decent margin of error, since the sample size is gonna be pretty small overall.
