Mid-Month Survey Update

Survey Countries

We are a little more than halfway through this month’s survey of Fenn treasure hunters. We have a total of 87 responses, which is not a bad sample. As you can see in the image above, the majority of respondents are from the United States. Other data indicates that, of those in the United States, 69% of the respondents live in States other than the “search States” of New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana.

If you haven’t taken the survey yet, please take a minute to do so. It’s relatively painless, and I plan to share all the data soon after the survey is completed on February 15, 2014. Click on the Survey link in the menu bar near the top of the page to get to the easy-to-take survey.

If you have a suggestion for next month’s poll or survey, please leave it in a comment box below.

Thank you!

  • the word, “Colorado” does not appear
  • the word “Montana” appears 3 times, 1 of which is a reference to “The Montana Gazette” rather than the State
