The following text shows the questions I asked and the answers given after a telephone interview of people who have signed up for the Editing class.

I have called everybody I can get to. Some telephone numbers provided have been disconnected. Some have not responded to messages I left on an answer machine. Some were not answering the phone, Ring No answer.

The answers have been sorted within questions that were asked.

Names are not shown, Phone numbers are not shown,

nor are your email addressís. All done to protect your privacy

I cannot wait much longer for people to respond.

There are 37 names on the sign-up list.

So far 23 people have returned my calls and answered the survey

This represents about a 62 percent response rate. 23/37

I thought you might like to know the results of the survey,

but still protect the individual Identityís

If there is any information listed here that you want removed,  All you have to do is ask.
