Survey says…

December 23, 2009

Many thanks to the nearly 90 people who have filled out my survey to date. Your recollections, opinions, and feedback are helping me to shape my work and refine my ideas. Please feel free to pass the link to other fans and friends.

For those of you who like statistics, meaningful or otherwise, of the 89 respondents so far, 51.7% are between the ages of 61 and 70 and 31.5% between 51 and 60, meaning that for the most part the internet fan base for the Everly Brothers is younger than Don and Phil themselves. 73% are male and 27% are female, but I suspect that selection bias is skewing that number from the generalized fan base. (For a fascinating report on gendered usage of computers and the internet, see “How Men and Women Use the Internet” at the Pew Internet and American Life Project.)


Everly Brothers Fan Survey

October 14, 2009

I have created a survey for Everly Brothers fans, hoping to capture some interesting viewpoints and data to use in my dissertation. I was restricted to 10 questions, but I think that will be enough. If any of my fellow musicologists are listening, let me know if the questions seem reasonable or what tweaks need to be made.
