This was Gunnar's age survey. I thought that getting an age
distribution was a good idea but getting the ages of specific members
was not and so I provided an anonymous way of supplying the data via
I expected that the younger members would be more apt to supply their ages
attached to their names than would the older members. I was correct
(although I'm not sure if the numbers are statistically significant.)
I didn't even think about a difference in the sexes.
I'll supply the data I got when Gunnar calls a close to the survey.
In the meantime, you can still add your age to the list. Visit
http://world.std.com/~raparker/temp/age.html and then click on the
link that represents your age. From there you can go to a website
that will tell you how much longer you have to live. If you posted it
already or visited the webpage before please refrain.
As for other surveys, I could think of a few too (e.g., professions,
nationalities) but I doubt that I will implement any. Even when I put
up new Eliot related webpages and announce them to the list I'm doing
well to get over a dozen hits (out of about 250 list members.)
Kate, you could ask that political votes be sent off list to you in
Florida and then you could make up the final results -- just like it's
done by the professionals ;-)
