Doing a UC Berkeley survey on games, and could use your help

You can't expect us to remember when we first heard of a game.

I miss a "don't remember" option, or a "not sure" qualifier. :)

I hope your teacher will not be as tough as I would be when it comes to sample randomization. And GL HF with your studies. :D

Well, the general timeframe is what I was hoping for. Most people I've talked to have a sense of roughly when they heard about a game, within a few years. Your best guess would be fine.

Thanks! I appreciate it. :)

Done. I wish certain questions had been more fine-grained (especially about working in the industry), but it's all cool.

As a sociologist, the question about income levels struck me as pretty innocuous--it's the sort of thing you always ask about on surveys, along with gender, race, etc. (Actually, it's odd the survey didn't ask about race.) Sociologists doing survey research sometimes have to wrestle with how to get people to answer probing questions about controversial political topics, drug use and sexual habits. Income levels are pretty tame compared to that. And income could be relevant to the survey--correlations between that and how much money someone spends on games, how much time they spend gaming, etc. could be interesting.
