Poll with Cole

Polling Project

For this poll, both Cole and I asked the same amount of people at Laurel (21 people each) questions about alternative vs western medicine. Wanting to have the same demographics, we split up the groups to have the same amount of boy and girls, as well as the same amount of people in each grade. We decided to use the same questions, but word them in a biased way to see if people's answers would be different. 

My questions: Are you skeptical of alternative medicine?

Is western medicine more safe?

How healthy do you feel you are on a scale of 1-5 

Cole's questions: Do you believe in the powers of alternative medicine?

Is alternative medicine more safe than western medicine?

How healthy do you feel you are on a scale of 1-5 

We compiled our information into a google sheet:

Overall, the way we worded our questions had no large effect on how people answered. This may be due to the fact that a lot of people didn't know much about alternative medicine. We originally picked this topic because we assumed more people at Laurel were aware of this topic. If we were to do it again, we would give more background information. 

Some results:

8/42 people are skeptical of alternative medicine 

9/42 think western medicine is more safe 

As far as the health scale: the healthiest people from the poll are girls
