/ Final Year Research Study - 5mins of your time.
My name is Jonathan Lloyd, I am currently studying in my final year of University and undertaking my final year independent study. My study is investigating the relationships between climbing, helmet use and risk taking.
The views of UKClimbing users would be a massive help to my research study, And would be much appreciated.
My research takes the form of a 5minute questionnaire, no personal information is asked for, all responses are anonymous, and all data collected will be used for Academic purposes.
To complete the questionnaire simply follow this link:
If anyone has any questions at all, feel free to comment on this thread, and I will respond accordingly.

Hi there Oceanrower, many thanks for your reply. It could be suggested then that wearing a helmet, or not as is the case for you, has 'no effect' on your route choice? The final questions is merely a reflection of your thoughts as a climber?
Hope that helps? Nonetheless, thanks for the thoughts, will definitely take that on board!
Questions 11 and 12 are a bit broad. Wearing a helmet is only a small part of my decision on what route to attempt. So although there is a positive correlation between helmet wearing and danger/difficulty of route attempted, it's quite small. If your aim is to draw some conclusion about helmet wearers taking more risks, then you're going to end up overstating this as a result.
Thanks for the feedback victim of mathematics, it is all appreciated, and definitely helpful!
Let me know if you want an overview of my findings upon completion, would be more than happy to arrange that!
