Over the next few days/weeks, I’m going to try to share some graphs on statistics that need visual representation to be better understood…this comes as a result of my having trouble finding graphs to represent “the numbers” I need for presentations. I share them here in the hopes they will be useful to others.
This blog entry includes graphs based on data the Sex and Tech:Results from a Survey of Teens and Young Adults by the The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. From the document with survey results:
This survey was fielded online to a total of 1,280 respon- dents—653 teens (ages 13-19) and 627 young adults (ages 20-26) between september 25, 2008 and october 3, 2008. It was conducted by tRu, a global leader in research on teens and 20-somethings.
At present, it is estimated that about 90% of teens and young adults are online. Respondents for this survey were selected from among those who have volunteered to participate in tRu’s online surveys. Respondents were stratified according to the u.s. Census and the data have been weighted to reflect the demographic composition of teens and young adults. Respondents do not constitute a probability sample.
This document contains the precise language used in the sur- vey and separate results for teens and young adults, as well as the total combined. for additional data, please visit www. TheNationalCampaign.org/sextech or contact the national Campaign at 202.478.8500.
Note that these are my attempts to graph data existing in the report…Any errors with the graphs are mine alone and I welcome correction in the comments.
