Starting Survey results – Survery Countries

Well, I have started formatting the results from the survey. This will take a little while as the survey software doesn’t make it easy to download and clean it up (without paying for a subscription). As soon as the data is cleaned up I will post the entire data set and a link for everyone to download.

However, while I work on the data, I will provide some summary results. Here is a list of countries who had respondents. If a country is not listed, it had 0 responses/
