MSE Poll: The Annual Census

Poll started 12 September 2017

The Annual Census

So who are MoneySavers? For the fourth 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 fourth annual MSE census.

Please answer the following 11 questions.

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.

Thanks! :)

    There is one flaw in the Employment section: you're missing out contractors. We're essentially zero hours employees BUT because we're forced to work through our own limited companies, we have even less rights.

    It kept saying I had chosen too many options and was only allowed 11.

    not sure who wrote the questions but I feel that missing out pointless from the list of TV shows is a big mistake :j

    I got both and I would definitely rate the apprenticeship higher.

    I can't believe that many watch the BBC's version of the news.

    I too was amazed. Gave up the BBC in May this year- it's dreadful.

    I thought the same. The BBC is my news source of choice
