Above is my group's attempt to create a survey that would study the drinking habits of college students. We used a snowball method to procure responses for the survey by telling our friends to take it and posting it on Facebook and asking people to take and share it. In the end, we garnered more than 100 responses, which was much more than was required.
In class we used the online statistical analysis program Statwing to analyze the data collected from our survey. We also attempted to communicate some of our findings visually. While I doing so, I noticed that our questions could have been revised a bit more to get more specific and helpful results. It worked well enough as a general survey, but it would be interesting to write and conduct a survey that delved into more specifics.
