Here is the "annual" Byzcath Survey . . . which I haven't done for about a year and a half. It's time. Enjoy. It's anonymous to take. And hopefully it will produce some useful information.

Um, just how does this work? Do you have to submit after each question, or just at the end?

For each question, you select your answer and click the button that reads "submit vote."

I had to think about that for a second, and then remembered that I am a wife and a mother!!! In other words: everyday! LOL

Just a note, for confession I put "whenever I feel like it" because that is generally when it is, if I feel that I need to go to confession I go. By feel, I mean that I know or can tell that I have done something gravely immoral or something is weighing on my heart. So I go several times throughout the year and definitely during Phillip's Fast and the Great Fast.

I notice that for the question about the Catholic Catechism, 38% said "none of the above." So, what do you use the Cathgolic Catechism for, if anything? (Should I have had "I don't use it at all" option?)

I really don't know. I got it some fourteen years ago, read it through, realized it had nothing to do with us, and put it up on a shelf. I suppose it's a placeholder for something better I have not yet bought.

I don't think I could use it to light my barbeque. Not only am I morally opposed to book burning, books don't really burn all that well (unless you douse them in gasoline, but you can do that to the charcoal and leave out the middle man).

I accidentally entered that I pray "monthly" by mistake. So that one is me! Ugh. Please don't think anyone actually entered that answer! Of course, I meant to enter "daily."

The survey answers are quite interesting, so far.

About how many replies do you get before you close the survey? I should think you need about fifty to get any statistically significant results.

In statistics, 30 is our idea of a "large number."

It isn't a question of how many you need to be valid, but how certain you can be given the number of responses you have.

Hi Stuart,

Like Doc said, 30ish - 40ish.

Be well.

The problem with a small sample is outliers have disproportionate weight. Still, the results so far show very interesting trends.
