Can you spare a few seconds to fill in a survey for me?

    As part of my ICT work for this year, we have to gather data. My choice of data was to research the link, if any, between gaming and obesity. As such, it would be extremely helpful if you could answer one of the following surveys.

    Short Survey- This has only three questions. It'll take you less than ten seconds, and stores no personal data whatsoever.

    Longer Survey- This has more questions, and asks for Age, Gender, and Location. It won't take very long at all.

    None of this data is identifying, and in accordance with data protection legislation will be deleted when processing is complete.

    Thanks in advance!

    I had to look up how to calculate my BMI, but I still don't know what the global average is so I had to answer according to what it stated the healthy range was.

    and global average... would that include the starving people in africa?

    did the short one and i hate you for using BMI. it lumps athletic and obese people into one "too big" category.

    It's gaming specifically, stick. (The point i'm trying to prove is that if you didn't play games you'd just be arsing around on reddit as opposed to doing push-ups etc.)

    Global average is a figure i was given. The site was unspecific as to how many starving people it polled. Average is perhaps fishy wording though, i suspect the data i was given was "healthy normal" not "Average".

    Took the long survey.

    You should have had an option for people who don't own a console on the 'which consoles do you own question' to say 'I don't own any of these consoles'. And additionally the 'how many hours a week do you spend playing consoles' is a double nix if you don't own any.

    Took the longer one. Only takes a minute for those of you who only took the short one.

    Thanks to everyone who has responded and given feedback (If you were planning to respond, but haven't yet, you have about three hours before my deadline*)

    This survey was also posted on SPUF, which explains why i have quadruple the number of responses i expected, but 7% of those respondants would, if unable to play computer games, spend the equivalent time "mastebating". Good old internet. This adds the extra complication of having to categorise that as an active or inactive activity, course.

    *You might think that the fact that i posted this three days before the deadline means that i waited until the last minute. Nope, our ict class now expects ALL our assignments to be done in three days. Including things like "Make a professional-quality interactive flash document". Fun fun fun.
