A survey of U3A Members was carried out in 2009. There is a great deal of fascinating information that was gathered. These include the distribution of gender viz. 74% female to 26% male - much as one would expect until you see the number who live alone i.e 40%.
The amount of members who now access the internet is surprisingly high at 73% and 47% access the web most days. Contact by email is also high with only 23% never accessible.
Also in the report are results of the length of time members have belonged. So 50% belonged for 1 to 5 years and 25% for 6 to 10 years. 12% belong to more than one U3A. 30% go to 1 or 2 events per month, 28% go to 3 or 4 per month, 23% go to 5 to 9 events per month. 16% attend 10 or more events per month! What about you?
