Been There - General Survey Pt.2

This research analyzes results, gathers information, and highlights trends from Survey A and Survey B. Information about each of the survey’s results has been synthesized and presented below.

METHODOLOGY/FINDINGS

The survey questions for Survey A were reviewed using Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4, Q6, and Q7; Survey B was analyzed using Q1, Q2, and Q3. As it pertains to the criteria of this request, the 63 respondents in Survey B were only provided questions that related to age, gender, and interest; the 50 respondents in Survey A contributed to all questions.

There were a total of 113 respondents (Survey A - 50; Survey B - 63) to the “Been There” surveys; however, Respondent #16, skipped the age and gender questions, so their results will not be included in the analysis of those elements. In Survey A, 33 female and 17 were male. The age groups were 18-29 (n=15), 30-44 (n=16), and 45-60 (n=19). In Survey B, 47 were female and 15 were male. The age groups were 18-29 (n=17), 30-44 (n=29), and 45-60 (n=16). Combining survey totals revealed that 80 were female and 32 were male. The age groups were 18-29 (n= 32), 30-44 (n=45), and 45-60 (n=35). A brief analysis of the data is presented in each section. If data has been compiled and/or proportioned the exact formulas used for the calculations are also presented.

Analysis:
Of the 22 responses to this question, 10 (45.45%; 10/22) were focused on “experience” in word or theme. The participant used terms like “life experiences” and “experience from others” to show an appreciation for the advice they can gain from someone how actually has experience in the advised topic. These respondents appeared to value an experience base in taking advice from others. There were two (9.09%; 2/22) respondents that mentioned an example of a dog (“The Dog couple” and “The man who spoke about adopting a senior dog”). These responses implied that presenting examples of the advice in action peaked their interest. Other respondents (three; 13.63%; 3/22) seemed to like the idea that the Been There service allowed them to have a connection to others or support. Finally, there were five (22.72%; 5/22) respondents who seemed to prefer the idea of the service having “a vast range of topics” and other topically focused interest criteria.
