Researchers Seeking Atheist Participants For Online Survey

I am sharing this information by request from researchers seeking to recruit atheists living in the United States who are at least 18 years old for participation in an online survey.

Here is how the researchers described the aims of their study:
The survey looks at the perceptions and attitudes of both affiliated and unaffiliated nonbelievers, concerning the functions and activities of secular, freethought, humanist, and atheist organizations, and also the conduct of individuals and groups in the broader atheist movement/community in general.

It is our goal with this project to generate a portrait of both member and nonmember nonbelievers in America; specifically, we want to understand the following:
  1. What nonbelievers think secular groups should offer in terms of activities and functions (What do they think secular groups should be doing?)
  2. What do secular affiliates think are the reasons that nonaffiliates do not join such groups?
  3. What reasons do nonaffiliates themselves give for not joining secular groups that exist for them?
  4. What general approach should secular individuals and groups take towards religion, religious beliefs, and religious people?
They request that we distribute the link to the survey to any atheists we know who are living in the United States and who are at least 18 years of age.
