FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a census?
A census is a survey of a specific population.
Is this survey secure?
The survey is completely anonymous and does not ask for any personal or identifying information.
Are there age restrictions for this survey?
While there are no age restrictions, we do ask that individuals under 18 obtain verbal permission from a parent/guardian as part of protocol.
What will you do with the data?
We will update the data on this website to be utilized as a resource. Our team members themselves do not have plans to submit the data for publications. Data will simply be displayed for the public consumption.
Can I use the data as a source for my own research, paper, article, etc.?
Of course! We hope that this type of data will serve as a helpful source of information for those who are writing and talking about BTS and ARMY. We simply ask that you let us know when you reference ARMY Census in your work :)
*We have no control over who cites our data and what they use it for, but we urge those who do to cite it accurately and use our analysis.*
Are there challenges or limitations in this type of research?
We understand that a project of this scale poses a few challenges and limitations. It is important that we provide the public with the most accurate data, while also remaining transparent in addressing these issues. Ultimately, this project has the potential to also serve as a guideline and recommendation on how to capture future global demographics.
How can I help with the project?
The best thing you can do to help is share the ARMY CENSUS project with as many people as you can. It is important that we reach as many ARMYs all over the world through different social media platforms and even by word of mouth. We know that this fandom has the special power to make this happen This is a special project that counts on all of us working together to spread the word <3
When the ARMY CENSUS is complete and results are out, we also need ARMY's help in disseminating the information and spreading the word.
