Hello,

I am currently doing research on how passwords are created all over the world. I created HITs on MTurk where I targeted different countries. So, for example, I made a HIT that could only be answered if the participant was in Ireland, and I did that for a lot of countries that MTurk says it has workers in. I made 45 different HITs for the different countries, but I only got 6 total responses from all the HITs that targeted a country outside of the United States. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts as to why I wouldn't have gotten any responses from outside of the US.

Thanks.

Many countries cannot receive actual money for tasks, only Amazon gift cards so it's not really worth it to them to be on the platform. It's also really hard for them to be approved for work and even easier for them to get banned.
