How many people might participate in citizen science – and which groups could be targeted?

In a recent study on citizen science, Tobias Füchslin, Mike Schäfer (University of Zurich) and Julia Metag (University of Fribourg) analyze who is interested in participating in citizen science in the first place. They used representative data from the Science Barometer Switzerland to divide the Swiss population into six groups – five interested in participating, one not so much. Three key insights emerge from their analysis that Tobias Füchslin discusses in a recent Sage blog post.
