I'd like to see what thoughts there are about running an anonymous survey of ASF users (and unregistered visitors) to find out a bit about who we are and what our strategies/demographics are.
The notion is to put something up on surveymonkey, with completely anonymous inputs. We'd ask questions related to net worth, debt, housing, credit cards, asset allocation, employment, location and age.
I'm hoping that the anonymous aspect would not only encourage people to participate, but also remove any incentive to exaggerate or dissemble.
The goal is twofold
- find out a bit about what sort of people are reading ASF
- see what sort of interesting or surprising correlations we can uncover and learn from
For example, you'd expect that older people would have less debt, but to what extent is that actually true for our community? How does debt correlate against net worth, or employment status? How does age affect asset allocation (we've probably all got ideas about how it should, but what are people actually doing?)
We'd collect anonymous responses, and the results would be posted here for all to share.
What does everybody think?
