Population Survey


In order to gain a greater understanding of the population and health concerns of children on in Biddleville, our group distributed a survey to residents in different areas of Beatties Ford Road. The population was random, however a prerequisite to participation was that the individual would have to state that they lived in one of the subcommunities of of Beatties Ford Road. From this we were able to obtain statistics of the 100 residents willing to participate, roughly 0.5% of the overall population of the 28216 area. Below we have included an example survey completed, as well as a link to our blank survey. Finally we will relay information obtained from the survey.
