The Great Canadian Blog Survey

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.

The author is Aaron Braaten who is working on his Masters in Economics at the University of Alberta.

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.
