The survey should take between 20 and 40 minutes to complete, depending on the size of your family or household. If you do not have access to the Internet or cannot complete the online survey, we will automatically send you a paper copy of the survey in about a week.

The survey took me about 30 minutes to complete, and I saved all the questions they asked along the way, for your enjoyment.
Interesting Questions: How many people did this get sent to? What will the response rate be? What would you do with this data?
Without further ado, the questions.
