RE: [astrology-25] Statistics Question

Hi,

Great email. It’s inspiring. I’m developing a one-page personalized astrological report to sell from my website. I’m working on it right now.

 

It would be even more informative if the statistics were laid over Facebook participation by Sun sign (if obtainable).

 

I’m sure the group’s guesses did not adjust for data skewed towards which signs are more likely to actively use Facebook .

Then there’s a skew, possibly, for those who are happily committed who have less urgency for SignsAlign.

Then there’s a geographic/demographic skew. I’m in Red State Texas where Christians aren’t pro-Astrology. One guy I invited to see what was going on with his girlfriend said he would do a partnership report at astro.com but being in Texas, he wouldn’t want his friends to see him using the Signs Align application.

 

James, what are your assumptions in these areas? If each sign was 1/12th of the Facebook population, you’d probably have a different result. What distribution of Facebook users do you think you have? If you smoothed that down to 1/12th for each sign, how would your statistics be different?

 

Kind regards,

Steve

All,

 

OK everyone as a little treat for new years and perhaps as some new years cocktail party conversation fodder tonight below are the stats for signsalign so far.  they move around only a little bit but still are surprisingly holding up well.  Cancers are the most likely sun sign to sign up versus the capricorns being least likely.  So don't spend your time with the capricorns tonight unless they have a scorpio or libra rising or capricorn or aries moon.  

 

Cancers are nearly 1.5 times more likely to sign up than a Capricorn!  In some ways not shocking that a water sign would be more inclined to sign up versus the earthy capricorn.

  

These are the groups guesses.  I thought the group would be more accurate.  

 

Suns:

Aquarius - 3 votes

Cancer - 1 vote    -     WINNNER!

Sagittarius - 1 vote

Aries - 1 vote

Pisces - 1 vote

Scorpio - 1 vote

 

Moons:

Gemini - 3 votes     Almost least likely actually

Cancer - 1 vote

Leo - 1 vote

Pisces - 1 vote

 

Risings:

Leo - 2 votes  -  not Bad but not the winner

Gemini - 3 vote

 

Here is the SignsAlign data:  shocking is that Libra Risings are 2.4 times more likely to sign up versus Pisces risings.  Actually if you think about it that make sense right from an astrology view.

 

 

Here is the data by Element:  Very interesting.  Water signs dominant followed only by one air sign the Aquarian else all are way below expected.  The percentages are variances from US GOVT birth statistics.  Roughly one would expect 8.3% on average yet there is a major skew for the water and one air sign.  In fact only 4 or 33% signs are above the variance while 8 or 66% are below.  A skeptic would have asserted that maybe 50% would be above and 50% be below the 8.3% variance.  But we have some signs up at 30%.  

 

Sun sign Charts and by Element 

NOTE: Variance and Actual are labeled wrong.  Actual is what was expected and Variance is what we have

 

Water and Air dominant the astrology interest and earth signs just aren't into as much.

 

 

Moon Sign Charts and By element. 

NOTE: Variance and Actual are labeled wrong.  Actual is what was expected and Variance is what we have

 

Here we find Fire and Earth like astrology more than air or water moon signs.  Exact opposite of Sun Elements!

 

 

 

Rising Sign Charts and By Element 

NOTE: Variance and Actual are labeled wrong.  Actual is what was expected and Variance is what we have

 

Here we have one sign in one element that dominates where as the other two signs in that element fall off.  Earth Rising Signs are still least likely to sign up.  Scorpio Risings are leading not surprising. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Copied from emails earlier.

Veronica: Aquarius Sun, Gemini moons, Leo risings

Stephen: Scorpio Suns

Maria:  Aries Sun,  Cancer Moon,  Gemini ASC 

Eric:  Pisces Suns, Taurus and Capricorn Last sun sign

Sarah:  Cancer Suns, Leo Moons, Gemini ASC.

Chris:     Sun - (1) Sagittarius; (2) Gemini; (3) Virgo; ......... least interested : (12) Libra     

                                Moon - (1) Pisces; (2) Scorpio; (3) Cancer; ........ least interested : (12) Gemini

                                Ascendant - (1) Gemini; (2) Sagittarius; (3) Scorpio; ..... least interested : (12) Libra           

                                Overall I would think that a preponderance of people would be Mutable Sun/Ascendant and, by element, Water Moon

 

Kirk:  Aquarius suns, Gemini Moons, Leo Rising   "Gemini/Aquarius for their relationship to technology. Aries for the cardinal, be the first type of motivation."
Abby:  Aquarius Sun, 
Gemini moon

All,

 

I launched SignsAlign on Facebook on November 9, 2009.  We have 1850 members and about 80% are complete profiles meaning they completed their birth day time and location.  My question for all of you is what Sun sign do you think would have signed up the most,  what moon sign and what Rising/Ascendant signs?  I thought all signs would sign up evenly however the data may have revealed something else.  Curious what you all would predict before I share it with you.  

 

Thanks for your help.
