iShare published the third part of their hayfever surveys for 2011; this repeated most of the results from the second survey, however, so there is only one new answer to report today.


Between the 17th and 20th of December 2010 2,766 members of the CLUB BBQ free email forwarding service completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 56.6% of the sample were male, 14.6% in their twenties, 37.3% in their thirties, and 48.1% in their forties.

I didn’t have a clue about the measure, but it would have been interesting to see how many of the people from Q2 who reported mild hayfever were actually moderate.

Research result

Yes 3.0% 2.6% 3.4%
No 97.0% 97.4% 96.6%
