I'm curious about the demographics of the paleo community. Is this information available? I'm interested in these types of demographics:
Edit, I forgot to add my own details.
Another edit, Caveman Bob posted this link http://www.tfaforms.com/228736 if you are interested in taking a paleoish survey on government involvement in food.
Here's a survey of more than 5,000 paleo dieters: http://naturallyengineered.com/blog/2011-paleo-community-survey-results-released/

It would be cool if Patrik or someone could set up a survey style question in this regard. It doesn't help me much to scroll down the list of answers. Is that possible? Or any way to collate info from profiles?
Age: 21. I was done with alcohol when I was 20 but I still like to go out for a drink with friends once in a Blue Moon (see what I did there?).
Gender: Female last time I checked.
Income: Nonexistent. I'm a college student but I can still afford food through this magical little piece of plastic called a credit card.
Location: I've been having a love affair with Los Angeles for the last 18 years. Vitamin D supplementation? Wut iz dat?
Political views: Somewhat in the middle. Liberal on some things, conservative on others. But I hate politics so I tend to stay away from it.
Race: Filipino (Asian), with some Chinese and Portuguese. But I'm very detached from my roots, unfortunately. Never met another Filipino Paleo-er, although Filipinos do love coconuts and cooking food in pork fat. My grandfather was extremely fit (lived to be 92) and looked like Jon Hamm when he was younger.
Religion: Catholic. There are some things I don't agree with but I still go to church every Sunday like a good little girl *cough.*
Age: Time is a trick invented by Swiss watchmakers (Ok, 44 yo)
Gender: Male (Love the ladies)
Marital Status: Happily Married
Religion: Christian Scientist (love my faith)
Location: Boston, MA Suburbs
Political: Conservative (though always try to see things from the other perspective, too...I like some things about the Liberal/Democrat side, just do not outweigh the things I dislike).
Race: White (Spanish/Irish Ancestry)...though frankly: I've never seen a white person or a black person, some are more peachy colored, some are more chocolate colored, some are more tanned, but we are all the same beautiful type through and through.
Profession: Mail Extraction Specialist
Income: Sad (see profession above)
Political views: Socially Liberal, Fiscally Conservative
Race: Viking (Swedish, Dutch, Scot and Irish)
Religion: Raised Catholic, still trying to detox
Income: above median for location, Software QA
Location: San Francisco, CA
Political Views: Near center on political compass, always a tiny bit to the left, and vary a little up or down. Consider myself independent as all the named political factions annoy me in one way or another.
Race: Asian (Taiwanese)
Religion: Catholic, pro-evolution, don't go to church, but like to do Lent. Like agnosticism in general.
