I found this survey over at the Plant Trees, It's Self Defense blog. It is a survey done by the Simplicity Institute which is aimed at folks who try to live a simpler lifestyle:
A Study on Simple Living, Downshifting and Other Low-Consumption Lifestyles in Affluent Nations
The Simplicity Institute is undertaking a multi-national study on people who have voluntarily adopted a 'simpler' way of life. The purpose of this study is to gain some empirical insight into those people who are choosing to move away from high-consumption, materialistic lifestyles and who are embracing simpler lifestyles of reduced or restrained income and consumption.
Who should fill out this survey?
This survey is intended for:
Those people who are living a 'simpler life' of reduced or restrained income, consumption and/or working hours.
(If you are a parent who has reduced or stopped paid employment to care for your children, or if you are a student, please fill out this survey only if you think your 'simpler lifestyle' is a long-term way of life.)
This study is not intended for:
Those for whom simple living is involuntary.
It took me about 5 minutes to do the survey. If you feel like you are a part of the target group and would like to participate, you can find the survey here.
