Five years after publishing the first academic survey of the ancestral health (“paleo”) community, we recently completed a new online follow-up survey (n=1,508) to determine what has changed and what has stayed the same. We collected demographic information, and data on nutritional, exercise, and lifestyle practices. We then compared his new data with the data from five years ago (2013). Our main hypothesis is that the responses from this new survey will be different from our original survey from five years ago. Those differences will include: a different number of respondents to the survey (fewer), a different level of adherence to nutritional practices (lower), and a different length of time living a paleo lifestyle (longer). However, we also hypothesize that the basic demographic characteristics (age, gender, race, etc.) between the two data sets will remain largely the same. Please note: the results of our original 2013 survey can be found here: https://jevohealth.com/journal/vol1/iss1/3/
