as a relatively new convert to the montreal sp/mp scene, i have become very interested in the number and demographics of those who visit mps/sps in montreal. i have very little sense of this since i only know one other person who visits sps (an old friend from high school). Of course, this is not a topic that i freely discuss with my colleagues at work or others in my community. i wonder if there are any surveys out there (seems like it might be good for at least one masters or maybe even phd thesis.) in terms of numbers, i see that this board has about 27,000 members. when i check the number of individuals viewing the board, i usually see that there are about 10 times more guests than members. does this mean that over a period of time there are close to 300,000 individuals viewing this board?? if so, how does this translate into the number that actually visit sps/mps in montreal-- anyone have any solid ideas of what the numbers actually are? of course the demographics of this group would be very interesting. has this board ever done a survey to determine our professions, incomes etc.?
