Risky Activities Online Survey - Participants Needed

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,

I'm a researcher at UCLA. As part of my current line of anthropological research, I'm investigating the frequency with which people participate in various physically risky sports and activities.

I'm running a short online survey as part of this research. The survey only takes about 5 minutes to complete and any participation is of great help to me and my research group.

If you would like to participate, simply click the link below:

Again, thank you very much for your consideration and/or participation. It is greatly appreciated.

Research Coordinator:

Dr. Daniel Fessler

UCLA Anthropology Department

Not according to BushwackingPA. Since skiing isn't risky, you're merely being singlely at risk for being fat and out of shape.  ;-)

 Simple enough survey, I took it, i hope it has some value to someone.

Hell, the drive to the mountain is the most risk we all take to ski.....

The thing was so absolutely generic I am wondering how they will learn anything from it.

Flawed.  The terms need defining.

Simple for you maybe; I'm so confused.

Question 2 has a whole bunch of terms, like off-piste b/c skiing, and freeride skiing.  If i ski recreationally off-piste What do i click?  Is freeride only judged events? Is it jumps and tricks or high speed gnarly lines?  What if i do that recreationally in the back country?

What about climbing?.  What do you call it when you see a 100 m cliff on a two-week canoe trip and climb to the top to see the view?  Speaking of which, why isn't there a box for white-water canoeing?

also, if an activity is not available in your area, but you have done it elsewhere in the past, what to you mark?

I would be curious what % of the population is in a relationship that is:
1. long term
2. commited, AND
3 romantic?

surprised about that as well

I am confused.  My Real Dangerous High Risk  activity wasn't listed anywhere.  Hell breathing the air at UCLA is more high risk than skiing.

Dr. Fessler,
Will you post the results of your research when it is complete?
Thanks,

Man, the guy could use a bit better help in the wording of his survey! 

What the heck is off-piste skiing? I bet 90% of US skiers don't understand that term! Even though 85% of skiers does it!!!

And what kind of "Freeride" that doesn't involves hucking??? 

And where do you draw the line between "Downhill" and "Freeride" mtn biking???

The funny thing is, there're 3-4 different "types" of mtn biking and skiing but only one type of white water kayaking! So fine grain seperation of creeking vs playboating vs peole like me who puddle down class II-III in a rubber duckie (not exactly but you got my drift).

I decided to finish the survey since I was half way through it just to see what it's about. But I picked I'm LESS LIKELY "to take risks with your health and safetyto take risks with your health and safety"!!!  After all, I don't smoke, I don't eat till I explode. THAT, would be "taking  risks with your health and safety"!!!

Hope the "professor" likes my answer!
