2013 HA Basic Survey
The Homeschoolers Anonymous (HA) Basic Survey was conducted for adult graduates of the Christian homeschool movement.
242 individuals took the the survey. Those 242 individuals represented 42 U.S. states and 8 foreign countries. The majority of respondents are from families which were members of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA).
Throughout this survey, “respondents” will signify the 242 individuals from 42 U.S. states and 8 foreign countries that participated in the survey.
These respondents do not necessarily reflect all adult homeschool graduates, nor is it claimed that these 242 individuals are a representative sample. Three important considerations are to be considered:
- This survey was conducted for graduates of the Christian homeschool movement specifically.
- This survey was open for anyone who desired to participate, thus it is self-selected.
- Effort was made to solicit diverse responses from this specific subculture of adult homeschool graduates, whether their experiences were positive or negative. At the same time, the primary methods for promoting the survey came from the social media channels and blog partners of HA.
The survey was designed by HA with the explicit purpose of helping to identify experiential and qualitative patterns as well as learning what the HA community’s needs are.
