OT: Related Careers and Jobs To This Forum

So I think all of us here have an intense passion not just for hockey, but for demographics.
We love talking about ratings, fan interest, market viability.
If you know me, you know this interest is magnified by 10.

I just love data mining through surveys trying to get benchmarket results on all things demographically related.
There is no job probably I would enjoy as much as something related to what we discuss.

I wanted to ask a few things (mods I didn't know which forum this belongs in so I am posting it here instead).

1) Do any of you work in a field related to the discussed topics (surveys, demographic and market research)?
2) What are your job titles?
3) For someone such as myself, what industry field and job titles would I look at?
4) What organizations (private, public, academic) offer such positions?
5) What skills does one need (I have an MA in Geography with descriptive stats, but not advanced Nate Silver level).
6) Are the job duties unclear or is this is a very task orientated field with routine, repetitiveness (something which I crave and need).
