- A slightly lower number of the sample were between 25 and 34 years old, with 16-24 year olds being the least represented (3%). However, research shows that it’s common for younger people to interact less with social surveys, so a lower proportion would be expected.
- More women responded to the survey than men (64% compared to 36%). However it’s also common for women to interact more with social surveys than men.
- Most of the survey respondents were white (97%).
