SECOND Geocaching Motivations Survey

Post by eforehand » 11 April 13 6:55 am

Dear Geocaching Community,


Our group at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) is continuing our research on Geocacher Motivations. Based on the responses from our initial survey, we have constructed a second one that is more targeted. It will help us gather quantitative data on what motivates Geocachers to play the game.
If you would like to support our efforts by providing your views, please fill out the short survey at the URL below. Your participation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Also, please circulate this to any geocaching circles you may know of!


Sincerely,


Dr. Robert W. Lindeman, Amirhossein Farvardin, Elizabeth Forehand
If you have any questions or concerns email us at geocachingsurvey@wpi.edu =D>

Done. Is it possible to let us know some results, at some point?

Absolutely. We should be done with our report around June, at that time we will have material for posting. I can tell you now that Australia/ Oceania had the second most respondents on the first survey! This could be changed on the second survey, you could take FIRST on the most number of respondents!! ;)

I'm supposed to be doing my own studying, but I gave in to the distraction! That was a fun survey! I was rung up the other night and asked in a foreign voice if I would participate in a survey that would take 40mins. I said no and hung up. A day later, my partner told me it was him... :oops:
