Global State of Preparedness Survey

Most of us put a lot of thought and resources into being prepared. For many it is a real lifestyle and not just a hobby.

We invite you to participate in the Global State of Preparedness Survey that will offer a snapshot of how prepared people are right now and will give you an idea how prepared you are as compared to others.

The purpose of this anonymous survey is to assess priorities and strategies and create a benchmark for the future.

It will also help you to spot some issues you might have overlooked in your preparations.

We are also working with an illustrator to create an easy to understand report of the survey data we will send to you.


Please share this with fellow preppers.

      Hi John,
      we will gather responses for about 2 weeks and then I will whip the data into presentable shape and our illustrator will get going to make it look pretty. So I guess in about 3 weeks we have something to show.

    This survey was great! Thanks for putting it together. It caused me to reassess everything.

    So fearful of overlooking something critical, I have found two important guides. One is Incident Command System position checklists, used in large-scale disasters. The other is titled Tips From Sarajevo: 100 Items to Disappear First. Both can be tailor-made for your own situation.

    I, too, am looking forward to the results of this survey.

    Thanks, again.

      Sure I understand this. But keep in mind we do not log any personally identifiable information though. No ips or whatsoever, so you are as anonymous as surfing other websites that do not log these kind of things (many websites actually do log these kind of things so you are even more anonymous here!).

      I also recommend to use a VPS (virtual private server) to connect to the Internet. It is a great way to stay anonymous and even your own Internet Service Provider can not track what you are doing.

      I started to fill out the form but closed it without finishing. No offense to the intent, but I started feeling vulnerable… almost like standing in an open doorway with my back to the street.

    I like the survey, but it will only include those in the Prepper Community. I would bet that is less than 1% of America. Very sad – DaaSwampman

    Those were some good questions posted, thanks for results when posted. Especially looking forward to the ‘5 things when . . . ‘ results, that is very hard to answer when its just 5 – and nothing else!

    i missed the survey…looking forward to the results…I’ve learned to focus on what is clearly essential vs what might be cool or the new stuff in terms of gear. After reading your stuff where you were originally posting, I decided to make my preps solely about the basics and stop wasting money.

    Ammo is great to have and lots of weapons, but if you don’t train on your weapons or bother to buy food, somebody is probably going to kill or rob you pretty easy.

    I’d rather buy a used USGI pack vs a cool Multicam pack…focus on what is functional and of the best value.
