Why are you asking socio-demographic questions?
Past studies have found that the answers to these questions are sometimes related to participation levels in other voluntary projects, so your responses help us determine the extent to which that is true of participation in Zooniverse.
In addition, the answers to the other attitudinal questions we asked on previous pages can vary based on these socio-demographic quantities, so in order to control for those variations we need to have these responses.
Why do you want to know about religion?
Religiosity can be an important factor in attitudes and lifestyles, as well as sometimes being related to participation levels in other voluntary projects. We therefore ask these questions for the same reason we asked the other socio-demographic questions.
We also recognise that some may object to sharing this information, so we have made these questions optional. If you feel comfortable answering these questions, the information will be extremely valuable to the research study. All of your answers will be kept confidential and anonymous.
Note: all of your answers will be kept confidential and anonymous.
