Volunteers Needed: Canadian Mobility and Spending Patterns (CMSP)

I am looking to recruit some brave souls to participate in a pilot survey project. The intent is to supplement our current population census data with specific spending patterns and behaviors of eCanadians.

The survey will seek to measure activity, expenditures and working habits of eCanadians based on level.

Ideally I am looking for a minimum of 5 volunteers in each of the following level ranges:
This is to gauge interest though and nobody will be turned away.

At the risk of scaring potential participants away but in the interest of full disclosure, I must advise volunteers that the process will be intensive. The best data possible will be collected if participants stay active and contribute for a months time.

There is no monetary compensation planned at this time although if this is successful I will seek funding at which point the issue will be revisited.

The data collected could prove invaluable in Government policy and business planning for the future.

Thank you for your time and I hope this finds a willing audience.

Well, if this is something that government will use, there better be some monetary incentives...

Voted, BTW

Thank you for your vote.

At this point in time it's a private citizen's endeavour as I'm not affiliated with any Government ministries nor am I in Congress.

If this project gains the support of eCanadians then the data collected would be valuable to both Government and Organizations. At that point I will seek public and private funding to compensate participants and make it an ongoing survey (time series would prove even more valuable).

I would sign up, but I wouldn't be much help. I don't buy anything at all.

I can't stress enough how every potential type of player is important and representative. If you buy nothing Uraczak that means you are active in other ways and so it will be helpful to record.
