Activity: Gathering Data for Questions
Now choose one of your questions, and let us work out how to gather the data!
How you gather the data depends on the type of question.
- If it is about people's ideas or opinions you may need to do a survey.
- If it just needs counting, go out and count!
But before you go gathering data, make a form that can be filled in. Gather as much information for each answer that you can (without affecting people's privacy) so that you can play with the data later.
Example: People's opinion on spending more on the park:
|Age||Gender||Spend More (y/n)?||On What?||How Much?|
