Poll Surveys

 

Poll results are prevalent in the media, especially leading up to elections, as are reports on surveys done by universities and research groups.

The survey results of small groups of people are used to portray a general consensus about a population. Do you ever wonder how many people should be included in a survey to make it a meaningful reflection of a population? Now you will be able to answer your own question. After learning this, you might never feel the same about these polls and surveys again.

Using the following specific resources, create a lecture (with citations) that includes the following:

Part 1: Survey Analysis

Political Survey

Use polls from one of the following sources:

Source 1 

Source 2 Describe a      political poll or survey. Analyze the number of people who participated in      the sample compared to the number in the population.  Discuss how the      results of the survey can be used to tell a story or support an idea of      the sponsoring company or media group. 

General Survey 

Use polls from one of the following sources:

Source 1 

Source 2 Describe a      general opinion poll or survey. Analyze the number of people who      participated in the sample compared to the number in the population.  Discuss how the      results of the survey can be used to tell a story or support an idea of      the sponsoring company or media group. 

Overview

Consider the 2 surveys presented.  Using the      knowledge you learned from the textbook, compare and contrast the sample      sizes in each of the three surveys mentioned in the post and determine if      the samples sizes are appropriate.  In your opinion,      which appears to be the most valid? (Cite and reference the textbook) 

This section of the paper will be 2–3 pages in length, and each survey or poll described must come from AIU Library’s Newsstream ProQuest Database and the sources provided.

Please do not use quotes or copy definitions. You will not receive credit for understanding the materials if you use the words of others. Keep in mind that because you did research and you have citations in the body of the post, you must also place a reference list at the end containing the textbook and the articles cited.
