Entertainment Survey Report – Instructions & Rubric Below:

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 – 4 SECTIONS (each section is HALF A PAGE- don’t write more than that or you are doing too much)
Part 1 Section 1: Entertainment Survey
Using the newspaper article attached entitled Survey Report – Part 1 Survey Analysis and create a lecture (with citations) that includes the following:
• Describe an entertainment poll or survey. Analyze the number of people who participated in the sample compared to the number in the population. Most news articles will not provide information on the number of people surveyed. In this case, critique the validity of the results. (Be sure to cite the article attached Survey Report – Part 1.)
• 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.
