Moscow, Russia, April 17, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- ‘People’s Omnibus’ provides a new approach towards popular science. Its team wants to conduct professional social surveys on topics and questions provided by its audience. The topic might be a country or some social issue, and hundreds of people will be interviewed to answer the questions.
Igor, the project leader, wants to share how social science is interesting and helpful: “For me the most interesting thing in the world is trying to understand the human being. And the People's Omnibus is a great project towards such comprehension.”
For the first experiment Russia was chosen as the topic, as the team has everything needed to guarantee high quality of project’s results. For those who have any interest in Russia – that’s a chance to ask those strange Russians anything and to understand them a bit more.
If you have no interest in Russia at all - just imagine. Would you find such project interesting if it was about another country? USA? Japan? Australia? If the project is successful – People’s Omnibus claims to try launching similar project for other countries as well.

More details on “People’s Omnibus: part 1 – Russia”:
The idea of the project is in allowing people to ask their own questions:
· Backers - ask any questions they want.
· People’s Omnibus team - interviews 600 people via professional online survey, process and analyze the answers.
And then there comes a book with your questions and gathered answers, where all the participants are shown as co-authors of this book.
So here are two basic ways for people to take part:
· Get a book - either PDF version (5-8$), or a paperback one (21$);
· Ask a question (60$+).
The book will consist of at least 40 questions: 5 basic questions + 1 question for every 20 books ordered (both digital and paperback count) + all the questions added directly by backers via 'The Question' pledge. So the more questions are asked the more books are ordered - the better the book will be.
The question might cover any topic:
· Lifestyle and habits;
· Politics and economics;
· Games and entertainment;
· History and culture;
· Psychology (including complicated questions);
· Opinion towards your hobby or interest;
· Anything else.
Project team will use one of the greatest Russian internet-survey panels, which is used by most of professional research companies. And it is capable of representation of all the internet users of Russia - males & females, young & old, rich & poor, those who live in Moscow & those who live in a village in Siberia (in case he/she has connection to the Internet).
The questions already submitted vary from “What is your opinion towards Russian opposition?” to “Where have you ever seen a bear?”. If you want to support the project and submit your own question, join the project here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rakudajin/peoples-omnibus-russia
