    Default Profile Task Reset

    Apparently, the Amazon Mechanical Turk Team has reset everyone’s profile information. I am being allowed to complete the “Profile Information - Basic Demographics” HIT again.

    The Basic Demographics HIT has been fleshed out with a lot of information, including handedness and income level.

    I would guess they are going to make it easier for the survey operators to get the participants they want without using screeners.

    Yet another reset of this HIT: Profile Information - Basic Demographics

    There are 8 separate questions now: gender, birth year, handedness, smoker y/n, car owner y/n, ethnicity, income level and primary language.

    Default New Profile Task - Employment and Home

    The Amazon Mechanical Turk Team has added a new profile task: Employment and Home

    It asks for income levels, living situations, internet access speed and a couple of other things.

    Default Profile Information - Marriage and Family

    This HIT has been updated and may be retaken. It asks for marital status and number of children.

    I do wonder if perhaps these HITs are simply being refreshed every so often, as these are both items that change over one’s lifetime.

    Profile Information - Education Status, Profile Information - Device Ownership and Profile Information - Political Affiliation
    have also been refreshed.
