100 percent of people who took part in the poll didn't know they were taking it.

With the information from the national census starting to be drip-fed through the media,SPA Confidential thought it was high time that we released the figures from our music census. We've been compiling it in secret using the latest phone-hacking and garbage-bin rumaging techniques, so you know you can trust us. Here's what we found:

48% of hipsters have purchased vinyl in the past six months.

23% of hipsters have purchased cassettes in the past six months.

6% of hipsters have purchased 8-track cartridges and laser discs in the past six months (for use in ironic installations).
