In this report, I'm going to give you an impression about the first poll in the German MJH-Mailinglist. The poll was carried out between February 21, and March 2, with 41 people participating (that's 35,34% of the mailinglist-subscribers). In the course of this text, there will be many quotes, although sometimes abbreviated... Before going into details I want to point out that this is only a summary of the German report. Furthermore, please note that English is not my native language, so excuse possible mistakes.
Many thanks to all who took part in the poll, especially
average: 20.37 years minimum: 14 years maximum: 37 years Comparison to Melissa's age: 73.81% are younger, 26.19% are older
Germany: 83.33% Austria: 8.33% Switzerland: 5.56% Luxembourg: 2.78%
On this and on the next question, I logically got a wide spread of responses and I thought it was the best to divide them in four time-periods:
1997 or before: 67.50% first half 1998: 25% second half 1998: 7.50% 1999: 0%
1997 or before: 17.50% first half 1998: 22.50% second half 1998: 45% 1999: 15%It is interesting to note that the vast majority of the subscribers was introduced to Melissa before 1997 but most of them joined the Mailinglist in the second half of 1998.
