‘The World Hobbit Project’

Welcome to ‘The World Hobbit Project’

We are the Canadian team of an international audience study of the Hobbit trilogy. Over 145 researchers in 46 countries are participating in this unique and unprecedented study. With a survey translated into over 35 languages, this is truly a historical milestone in media reception research and audience/fan studies around the world.

We collected well over 37,000 responses from participants around the globe. After our initial analysis, we counted 36,109 valid responses, which makes this the largest audience study ever conducted.

Here are the first, preliminary results. More interpretations, analyses and publications to follow:
