Doomsday Preppers Survey

19 Jun

National Geographic Survey of Americans (pdf)

This survey (taken for the show “Doomsday Preppers”) has some interesting points:

► When Americans were told they could have unlimited access to any single thing after a catastrophe or disaster, 55% wisely selected water.

► “Which of the following do you think is a smarter investment?” Choices: a 401(k) or stocking up on resources. Surprisingly, 41% said stocking up on resources. I would have expected a much lower percentage, given that the survey is of general Americans

► We must take any survey with a grain of salt. You never know if people are being serious or not. When asked what movie scenarios could come to pass in the next 25 years, 7% said a Planet of The Apes scenario could happen. The participants were over 18 years old. has a good commentary about how the new show “Doomsday Preppers” might change how people view preppers.
