Wiki Surveys: Open and Quantifiable Social Data Collection

Cumulative number of activated ideas for PlaNYC [A] and OECD [B].

The PlaNYC wiki survey ran from October 7, 2010 to January 30, 2011. The OECD wiki survey ran from September 15, 2010 to October 15, 2010. In both cases the pool of ideas grew over time as respondents contributed to the wiki survey. PlaNYC had 25 seed ideas and 464 user-contributed ideas, 244 of which the Mayor’s Office activated. The OECD had 60 seed ideas (6 of which it deactivated during the course of the survey), and 534 user-contributed ideas, 231 of which it activated. In both cases, ideas that were deemed inappropriate or duplicative were not activated.
