I'm a student finishing my final semester in a mental health counseling program! I'm taking a research class that requires me to put together a small study (not a thesis). A gallup poll inspired me to choose a similar topic for my research: Vegetarians/Vegans and social stigma. I created a survey with 20 questions related to being veg plus demographics questions. The survey is aimed at vegetarians, vegans and others with similar dietary preferences (e.g. flexitarian, raw veg, etc). I would greatly appreciate it if this community could help me out by taking the survey. The questions are all yes/no or multiple choice so it should take less than 5 minutes. I will do an update with the results when the survey is closed in 1 week. 


Thank you!!

cool, I took it. I would have liked a sometimes answer for the parts where you feel people judge you negatively or positively or where people give you reactions. I get a mixed bag.

I took it as well. You probably can't release the results for academic/confidentiality reasons but it would be nice to get a general idea of what you found.

That Gallup poll is interesting, particularly If you have some college or less, you are at 6%, then as a graduate, you drop to 3%, but a post grad is up to 5%. Interesting. Also, survey done.

There was one question you had that I was uncomfortable with because it was so broad. I forget the exact wording but basically it was. "have you ever tried to convince someone to become veg*an?" In the almost 35 years I've been veg*n - the only people I've tried to convince are my two children. I'm more than willing to share - but I don't force my position on others. I think it's detrimental. I answered yes (I mean - come on - Ever [an absolute] in 35 years!), but your question didn't allow for differences of degree.
