The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) set me a survey.
It asks such probing questions as:
In the past 12 months, have I participated in recreational saltwater fishing?
In the past 12 months, have I been scuba diving.?
In the past 12 months, have I been to the beach or coastal park?
It also asks if I get my weather forecasts from TV, Internet, radio, newspaper or some other source.
If I tell 'em I went to the beach last year, do you think it will help the government provide better weather forecasts? Or have an impact on some other government program?
I wonder how much NOAA spends on surveys like this.
