And one more poll!

Another topic that came up at the conference last week was the ratio of posters with kids to posters without. While I'd like to give some of the background to this poll, I suspect it may bias the results, so I'll wait until a reasonable sample of votes are cast (say, over 100 votes or a week's time, whichever comes first), then provide the context.

Thanks all!

No kids, which is probably a good thing

As if parents with kids have the time to hang out here ... a bit of self-selection is inevitable, I think.

I think polls like this (unless they are done for fun, or just to get to know people) are pointless in here. The subject sample is far too small to draw any kinds of conclusions from about atheists in general.

It's not about atheists in general, but boards atheists

I have no citations or links for this, maybe someone else does, but I have heard second hand that there are statistics out there showing that most users of online debate forums such as this are male and i think also often childless.

I wonder if such a thing is true does it risk skewing your poll and diluting the usefulness of it for whatever the intention is?

Also statistically when interpreting your results it would be worth noting, at least in the back of your mind, that the poll does not allow for people who came here and have been posting a long time without children, but have recently had some. My own child is 10 months old. I have been posting here for some years however.
