I have published today a first set of analyses from the WLM 2013 participant’s survey:
- The first file contains frequency analyses and basic statistics for the entire sample
- A second, rather big file (600+ pages) contains the same analyses detailed per country (for countries with at least 10 respondents)
- The third file contains some summary statistics from the contacts data file (which is separate from the other data file)
Earlier this week, I have communicated the participants’ contact data to the local organizers of WLM 2013 as well as to the local chapters. Most notably, we were able to identify ca. 500 contest participants who indicated that they would be interested in helping with the organization of this year’s contest(s). Therefore, if you are planning to organize a photo contest in your country, I warmly recommend you to get the contact data from last year’s organizers or from your chapter and try to get those people on board. – In order to get an overview of the contact data that is available for your country, please have a look at the third file with the summary statistics of the contacts data file.
I have drafted an analysis plan that indicates how we may proceed in order to get more out of the survey: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VuDuu0kZ8TxQljaiB2jq0iZ-9wHPYfdd2lwkS9LlFj0/edit
Feel free to comment it. Right now, I don’t really know who is going to do all these analyses as they are quite time-consuming and the time I can put in this is rather limited. I have talked to the WMF program evaluation team, but so far they don’t seem to be eager to analyze the data, although it seems to me that the insights that can be gained from the survey would be complementary to what they have already done: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programs:Evaluation_portal/Library/WLM
Therefore, if any of you feels like doing a part of the analyses sketched out in the analysis plan, please get in touch with me so we can split up the tasks.
And don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the survey or the results.
