There was such a big response (in my little bloggosphere) about my post Biking by Numbers #1, that I was encouraged to create a survey to try to get to the crux of the disparity (in Milwaukee specifically) between the number of women and men who bike to work.
To review, according to the US Census data, only about 13% of bicycle commuters in Milwaukee are women. But in other comparable cities, even those with similar overall mode splits, 24%-40% of the commuters are women. This survey will try to answer what it is about Milwaukee that is so discouraging to women. But if you are a woman who does bike to work please fill out the survey too. We want to find out why women do bike as well as why they don’t.
Men, you are also encouraged to take the survey too. I designed it so the results could be split between men and women when we analyze the data later. I am interested in why men do or don’t ride to work as well. So guys, please take the time to fill it out too.
What if you don’t live in Milwaukee? Take the survey anyway. More data is always better than less data, and we can separate Milwaukee answers from other answers in the analysis.
I will probably close the survey in a fairly short time period, so please don’t delay. And spread the word/pass the link to everyone you know. The bigger the pool of respondents, the more statistically meaningful the survey will be.
here to take the survey: I wanna count
