Preliminary results from May fandom and convention survey
Over 50% of respondents were under 25, and the vast majority were Caucasian. 62% were single. Over three-quarters came from the US, with another 10% from Canada, the UK and Australia. Nearly 70% were enrolled in or had graduated from an undergraduate or graduate degree. Non-students tended to be in computer or customer-service related occupations.
Bad behaviour was selected as the worst issue at conventions, with overcrowding a distant second. Other people's hygiene and overall cost took third and fourth place.
