|I received a request from a student from the University of Athabasca. He is doing a survey on geocaching.
I thought I would post it here if anyone is interested.
I am a geocacher from Quebec, but also a student at the University of
Athabasca. For my final course in Social Sciences I have decide to do a
survey on Geocachers to define the participants by age groups, education
and occupations, to get a better idea of the social aspect of the sport and find out what motivates the geocachers to keep going in their search for more geocaches.
Is it the simple fact of finding more caches, is it the experience of going
outdoors, or finding new areas that they normally would not have gone to.
Is it the social aspect of doing a sport in a group?
Here is the link to the survey
The following survey is produced to obtain information on the demographics of geocachers in Canada, information on the social aspect of geocaching, and the motivation of the geocachers. The data obtained in this survey will be kept anonymous. If any data is included in the responses that can identify the respondent, the information will be destroyed and the data will not be used in the survey.
