The MoneySavingExpert.com Annual Census

So who are MoneySavers? For the third year running, rather than data-mining, we reckon the politest way to find out is just to ask.

Plus we think you may like to find out a little bit more about who else uses this site (or more accurately, who uses this site and answers the polls).

Welcome to the third annual MSE census.




Did you vote? Are you surprised at the results so far? Have your say below. To see the results from last time, click here.

If you haven’t already, join the forum to reply. If you aren’t sure how it all works, read our New to Forum? Intro Guide.

Thanks! :)

    The poll only lists 'atheist' and doesn't have a 'no religion' option. I'd like to see this in future polls as the two are very different from each other. I'd guess there are a lot more 'no religion' folk than people like me who are actively atheist.

    Scotland and Wales are not "regions of the UK", unless England also is. They are countries. As things stand, more than 50% of Scots don't even want to be in the UK, so it might be wise at least to recognise Scotland's status as a country.
  • It's pretty poor stuff that census.

    Wow...looks like MSE isn't doing enough to be 'inclusive'. Pretty low participation from so-called 'minority' groups. Or maybe they are more 'minority' than they and the press would have us believe!

    Does MSE Towers think the BBC is the only TV news source?

    A couple of other suggestions:

    —There's a layer of qualifications missing between FE and degree such as HNC, HND, higher diploma, foundation degree.
    —Temporary contract full-time / part-time employment status.
    —Radio news.
    —Metro newspaper

    Interesting to read the results nonetheless.

    I came here to post the same thing myself! Come to think about it, I'm sure I said the same thing the last time MSE had a census.

    Agree about the HNC/D qualifications bit. I'd say temp work would come under casual worker.

    I had to choose Antiques Roadshow as I actually made an appearance two years ago with my big leathery old chest!
