Youth Survey Results

  1. 1. Youth Survey Results The following is a summary of the analysis of the youth survey that was conducted during the months of August and September, 2010. The final tally for the survey was 536. After the results and analysis there is a summary of the methodology that was used to collected the data. The number of youth responding to any question may be less or more than 536 because some youth did not answer all of the questions and for some questions they were asked to respond to all the prompts that applied. The sum of the youth responding in all the categories will not always total to 536, the total youth surveyed. On a number of occasions not every youth answered every question. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- What activities are you involved in at school? 16% 5% 7% 17% 24% 46% 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 Other Student Government Service Clubs Music Sports Number of youth responding Activity Number of youth responding Sports 248 Music 130 Clubs 92 Service 38 Student Government 25 Other 86

  27. 27. Methodology We attempted to address three questions concerning our methodology 1) The ethics of conducting the survey, 2) The validity of the survey instrument, and 3) the representativeness of the sample. Survey Ethics: In the absence of an Institutional Review Board, we approached the ethical questions associated with the survey research by considering the issue from a public domain perspective. What are the guidelines for communicating in public? The individual must have the right to not communicate with you if they so choose. We told each participant verbally and in writing that they could chose to not answer any of the questions. Some chose not to participate. We asked for the permission of the owners of any private property (ex. malls) if we could administer our survey on their property. Some said no and we respected their wishes. We consulted with a local attorney about the legality of surveying minors. Although he could not find any specific laws concerning this, he did find some court rulings that suggested that it was OK. Instrument Validity: The survey was reviewed by people familiar with youth and a pilot study was conducted resulting in a number of changes to the survey. Sample Representativeness: We addressed the question of representativeness by 1) dividing the city into 10 regions and intentionally assigning surveyors (we had around 30) to one of these regions. We requested that they only survey in their assigned region. We suggested public locations to try within each region. 2) We gave instructions to each surveyor on how to choose youth to survey without consideration of any characteristic except that they were 12 to 17. 3) Finally, we looked at questions 3 (age), 4 (gender) and 5 (ethnicity) for indications of a representative sample. The findings for question five were also compared to census data for Redding in order to determine the representativeness of our sample. This analysis suggested that the sample was representative of youth in the areas of age, gender and ethnicity. Contact karen@reddingtransformation.com for more information.
