05:16 pm - What Do You Want To Know?
I'm helping a friend design a survey about sauna usage around the world. When it's done, there will be a link here and in other places on the web. The idea is to catch all sorts of sauna-goers, even those who don't much like it and those who insist on wearing a swimsuit.

It will mostly be multiple-choice, and will aim to find correlations between answers.

Are there any questions would you like to see answered?
Any statistic you've always wanted to know?

So there are questions to directly ask people, and questions to ask the survey - for which we will need to make sure we are collecting the right data.

For example:

Question to ask people:
"Do you believe in the Sauna Gnome?"

Question to ask the data:
"Do people who sauna naked spend longer in the sauna than people who wear a costume?"
This indirect question needs us to add the following direct questions:
"How long do you spend in the sauna?"
"What do you wear to sauna?"

We already have a bunch of ideas but I thought it was worth letting you guys have some input into the creation of the survey. You don't have to worry about the exact detail of how we work it out - I just want some more ideas of what you'd want to know.

Oo. "What country are you in" & "What country are you from" would be fairly essential.

Yes, a lot of people move.

Hmm. How old you were when you went to sauna for the first time?

(I've just been wondering if people start going to sauna as kids... outside Finland, that is. ^^)

That's an excellent question. We didn't have that one.

No clothes inside the Sauna. It is almost the same idea as: stop pretending. You are not having any position or role at the sauna. And Sauna Gnome doesn`t like shouting or any kind of trouble. I have a Sauna at least once a week like every Fin does. It should be a pleasure, not a matter of time.
