Re: Survey’s small pool of participants is not significant or representative
Joe: But of course I know that too many scientific studies have too small sample sizes. That doesn’t mean I am going to change my mind in how I think about them. The majority use a sample of around 1,000. I don’t have to tell you that in a study that aims at representing the U.S., 1,000 is nothing close to what I would consider as valid and relevant. There are now ongoing EU projects using samples of over 22,000 individuals, which is unprecedental in scientific studies, precisely because usually samples are too small. What researchers do is publishing results with the different sample sizes. Then you can clearly see how the sample size makes a difference in the results.

@Joe It's easier to hide something for a big reveal in a garage than in a driveway. That's just one of themany differences between real life and commercials. Cool move for your father!

@mhh: It's not that unrealistic. He didn't do the big red bow thing, and it wasn't a holiday, but my dad actually did surprise my mom once with a new car. It was sitting in the garage, though -- not the driveway.

@Ariella: I haven't, but I did see him speak at DEEP 2017 several months ago here in Boston.

In fact, I covered the event -- including his session -- for BBWN's sister site, Security Now, here: (link).

Re: Breaking Down Demographics
@Joe I had never thought of this. I know that it would be a major selling point for me if I was in the market for a house. I don't know if it would be the determining factor but it would be up there.

I didn't realize this. I'll keep that in mind if I happen to read one of his books. This is important data to know before reading about a study's result.

Re: Survey’s small pool of participants is not significant or representative
@joe - I'm not a fan of "tech" gifts unless they're specifically requested. Just like how I never understand those car commercials where a person is "surprised" by an Xmas gift of a Brand. New. Car. with a big red bow on it, sitting in a snowy driveway on Dec 25th morning... Who does that???

Re: Survey’s small pool of participants is not significant or representative
@Joe Have you ever read Dan Ariely's books? The sample sizes he works with are often really small and not all that heterogeneous eitehr as they rely on the university students they can get to volunteer.
