Assalamu alaikum,
Taking the cue from another thread, I have rephrased the question. What is the rate of remarriage among divorced sisters in your community?
0= very rare
1= somewhat rare
2= somewhat common
3= very common

??????Perhaps the low frequency of response to this poll is due to several reasons:

The question asks about "rate" but the response is about "frequency" (very rare - very common).
Rate has numerator and denominator, i.e. it takes into account of the number of relevant people. People in larger cities or masjid (e.g. NYC, S Cal, Houston) tend to hear more cases but in terms of rate, it might actually be lower than that of smaller cities (Kitchener). E.g. if a community in NYC (n=10,000) has 500 cases of remarriage in the last year [you'd expect to hear remarriage everyday] while Kitchener (n=500) has 30, the frequency in that NYC community is higher but the rate is lower than those of Kitchener's ~ Rate: 5 cases per 1,000 people in NYC vs. 6 cases per 1,000 people in K.

Even if you obtain a large sample for this poll (e.g. n=1,000), the direct conclusion derived on this survey may not be valid because large portion of them might come from the same area or masjid.
A minor issue: This question is largely based on perception. For higher validity, such poll or survey should be directed to the leaders of the community.

does this really benefit us by knowing this? I mean would it benefit in our ibadah at all? my guess is not really. waAllahu Alim
