Now that I have officially closed the BJJ survey I ran, I wanted to share the complete data set (which you can download below). Here are the previous posts about the first 500 or so responses (see here, here, here, and here). All said, there are now 883 participants--which is less than the 1,000 I was aiming for but a great response rate nonetheless. So, thanks to everyone who took the time to take the survey. I will be sifting through the open ended responses about why people got into BJJ as well as the question about injuries. This is a very tedious and time consuming process since it involves coding the data by breaking it down into categories--e.g., ankle injuries, knee injuries, elbow injuries, rib injuries, neck injuries, etc. So, it will take a while to complete.
If others are interested in coding the responses to some of the other responses to open questions (that is, questions that are filled in rather than ones that have preset answer choices) I would greatly appreciate it. With a data set this size, I could certainly use some help! I already have someone looking at the responses to the questions about how much sport BJJ people watch (and which organizations/competitions) as well as people's personal competition habits. But there is plenty more to be done. Either way, I hope you find these results of interest. Once I have coded the responses about injuries and the responses concerning why people got into BJJ, I will share the findings here on The Grumpy Grappler.
