Robert: I understand your concern in answering the demographic portion of the survey. I want to assure you that all of the responses have been randomized. I do not have any ability to determine who answered what question, or in what way. The answers themselves are pooled and only the data is reported. All that being the case, the reason that demographic information is important to this study is to determine the background, and social horizon of the population responding to the survey. For the most part surveys are not useful without knowing what the composition of the population of the survey is. For example, to ask for attitudes on conservative politics from a population of supporters of the Tea Party movement would be a completely different survey than asking the same questions from a population of Green Party members. Without demographic information the differences would not be apparent. This is obviously a gross example, but I think that you get my point. I do thank you for taking the time to respond to the survey, indeed the numbers of responses that decided to take the survey and then skipped various questions is itself data that is useful. Thanks again. John Vodonick
