- Men are more likely than women to have dropped out after time point one. Forty-eight percent of men dropped out, as opposed to only thirty-five percent of women. This is a bit of a bummer, but not entirely unexpected ;)
- Younger people were more likely than older people to drop out. The mean age for time point one was 32 years, whereas the mean age for time point two was 33 years (not a big difference, but a statistically significant one). The average age of people who dropped out between surveys was 31 years.
- The only other patter of difference was between people who have completed uni education, compared with people who had not completed high school education, where people with a university degree were more likely to continue on to the second time point.
- Other than that, having kids, employment status, relationship status, and the time schedule that people responded on made no difference to their likelihood of staying in the survey.
Also, the second prize has now been claimed. Keep your fingers crossed for time point three!
