The comprehensive-as-can-be demographic survey of the forum was done over May 4th through May 11th (originally, and updated since). It covers the religion, location, and birth years of all members of this forum with at least one post. It will never be totally complete, as many members have left or had their accounts deleted, and thus their information is all but inaccessible for me. Also, you'll notice some differences from the previous survey, which was confined to religion only. This is because I cut down on assumptions unless I could infer something from information on their profile or from hints they dropped about themselves in posts or even in linked websites of theirs and even on Facebook! I hope you all like this survey, I put a lot of hours into making sure this was as comprehensive and accurate as I could, within reasonable effort.

There are 453 members with posts, and 3 accounts with posts are excluded due to being duplicate accounts. The list is current as of 9:01 PM, February 2nd, 2012 Christian Era. And I thought it deserved its own thread.

KYM, is this for all 400 or so members?   Do have any conclusions or thoughts about this data?

I thought the one other non-Ethiopian Oriental Orthodox fellow had identified himself as attending a Coptic Church? I could be mistaken though.


Have you also considered adding in ethnicity as well?

He mentioned he'd visited one, but I don't think he was a regular attendee. I have considered adding ethnicity, but rejected the idea b/c there would be too many people with too many ethnicities for me to really feel like bothering with.

Too many ethnicities?

Quite a lot of people on this forum (myself included) have multiple ethnicities. How would I go about making an ethnicity survey, I might end up listing people with combinations of various ethnicities in their own category. And then we'd have something like one person per category or some such absurd situation.

Rather than list by person you could list by ethnicity.  So say someone here claimed German, Thai and Botswanan ancestry, and someone else was Thai, Russian and Mexican you would have:

Members claiming ancestry from:

Germany: 1
Botswana: 1
Thailand:2
Mexico:1
Russia: 1

That would look too similar to the location lists though. I'd do it as:

German: 1
Thai: 2
Botswanan: 1
Mexican: 1
Russian: 1

Except I don't like effectively counting people multiple times.

All members with posts, excepting 3 apparent duplicate accounts. That's approximately 409 people.

Other than that I'm shocked there are so many Americans, no real conclusions. Though perhaps that monarchism has a pretty good future with over a quarter of the forum definitively being born in 1980 or later.

I've just checked the data to make sure it's completely accurate, and I can confirm nobody is included who shouldn't be, and nobody is excluded who should be on there. Also, this forum has 418 members with posts as of the time of writing, plus three duplicate accounts with posts. Said duplicate accounts are not counted in the demographic survey. The demographic survey also does not include members without posts.
