...that you were PC Ted! Bravo - one wonders how scientific research will ever be conducted if Political Correctness is allowed to take over. Polemics over....

Anyway, (with the usual caveats about Internet voting, and the survey potentially being loaded with some who do not have ch.) the summary is:

Male 70%, Female 28% (and a worrying 51 people who couldn't answer that question) giving 2.5:1 exactly. This is lower than most published figures (ie suggesting more women than in the past), but still massively in "favour" of men.

72% started ch before reaching their 30s.

Survey size of over 7400 makes those figures meaningful if not conclusive.

Conclusions? CH is a young persons condition in the main, and men are far more likely to have it than women.

(Afterthought - if indeed there are several hundred entries by mistaken migraineurs, that is likely to push the ratio back in favour of men.)
