How about a fifty-plus page document with all kinds of information about the Blogosphere in Canada? The Great Canadian Blog Survey was conducted by CanadianEconomist.com over a three-week period during September of 2005. They collected over one thousand responses.
Here are some findings from the survey:
- 55.7% of respondents had a blog whereas 44.4% did not.
- 50.3% of Canadian bloggers and blog readers are between the age of 18 and 35.
- Canadian bloggers and blog readers tend to be more highly educated than the Canadian population in general. The largest clustering of education levels was around the Bachelor's level, with 56% of respondents reporting a level of education at or beyond the Bachelor's level (Master's and Doctoral).
My gut tells me that a lot of this information is more news and political Blog-based, but regardless, there are some very interesting insights throughout.
