One of the coolest things about the ancestral health community is that there’s always something new happening – from research, to educational programming, to conferences like the Ancestral Health Symposium, and more. Being connected with such a vibrant and interested community of like-minded individuals is one of the many reasons I enjoy what I do so much.
That’s why I wanted to share this survey opportunity with you, my readers. This short survey will be used to evaluate the habits and characteristics of those folks who have made the switch to a Paleo lifestyle.
It will only take a few short minutes to complete, but will provide useful information to help better understand the ancestral health movement and where the future of this movement is taking us.
Check out the information below, and please contribute your data if you have some spare time!
Ancestral Health Survey
Professor Hamilton M. Stapell would like to invite the ancestral health community to participate in a new online survey. The purpose of this survey is to better understand who we are, and where we are going. Specifically, the survey seeks to accomplish three main goals:
1) Describe the current size and composition of the ancestral health movement.
2) Identify common practices and the most important motivating factors for going paleo/primal.
3) Predict the future trajectory of the ancestral health movement.
The survey includes approximately 25 questions, and should take 3 to 5 minutes to complete. We are seeking as many respondents as possible in order to ensure a usable dataset and meaningful results. Feel free to share this link with others.
Please note: The results of this survey are for academic purposes only, and all responses are anonymous. You must be 18 years old or older in order to participate in this survey. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Dr. Hamilton M. Stapell at: [email protected] or David B. Schwartz at [email protected].
