Church of Scientology Exit Survey

This survey is intended to gather data from former members of the official Church of Scientology. The purpose of this assessment is to quantify real-world data for statistical analysis and commentary regarding respondents' degree of involvement with the Church of Scientology and the paths they have taken after severing their connection to the Church of Scientology as founded by L. Ron Hubbard. This effort is NOT affiliated with the Church of Scientology (CofS) in any way, and is being compiled for independent research and informational purposes only by researchers from Project Chanology of Anonymous at www.WhyWeProtest.net [Not trolling! This is simply an effort to satisfy an academically inclined curiosity] We encourage wide participation from all Ex-Scientologists, Independent Scientologists, and those unwittingly exposed to Scientology doctrines as clients, employees, or students of WISE companies and other CofS-related front groups including the Volunteer Ministers, Drug Free Marshals, Narconon, Applied Scholastics, CCHR and the like. We have taken a great deal of care in crafting the survey to respect input and advice from the spectrum of those who have severed their relationship with CofS, including both those who have and have not continued to practice Hubbard Technology either as individuals or as communities. The survey consists of answering 20 simple questions, and is strictly for the sake of building a broader understanding of common trends amongst former members and participants in order to discover what can loosely be considered a "typical" course of action for those who leave the official CofS organization or any of it's affiliates. Many of the questions cover courses and processing organized according to the current Scientology Classification Gradation and Awareness Chart that is available for reference at: secure.wikileaks.org

To ensure privacy, no personal identification is required. To encourage participation we have not set up any requirements to register and log in to the survey. Thus we kindly ask that you submit only one set of answers per respondent on an honorsystem basis.

Thank you in advance for your participation! Additional information on this study, including full disclosure of content and the tabulated polling results, is publicly available at: http://tinyurl.com/CofSExitWiki
