The following data summarizes the general demographic characteristics of the respondants. Bear in mind that the Web survey group is primarily an injury reporting group as opposed to the club surveys which are more a population survey. All rate information is most reliable in the club survey data set.
|GROUP||Club Surveys||Web Survey|
|Average number of years telemark skiing||5.9||7.2|
|Lessons (lifetime average)||2.9||2.7|
Skill level of skiers in the survey population were normally distributed, adding to the validity of the data gathered.
