Age of participants

How many times a month does the average person go to the movies?

50 people were selected at random for our survey.

The range of our survey subjects is 45 years. Oldest person(56) minus youngest person(11).

The median age is 27.

The mean age of the overall group is 58.32, calculated by adding the ages

of everyone in the group(1458) and dividing it by the number of participants(50).

Survey sample

21 people visit the movie theater once a month.

22 people visit the movie theater twice a month.

6 people visit the movie theater 3 times a month.

1 person in the survey said they went to the movie

theatre 4 times a month.

Statistical data

The mean is 1.74 visits per month.

The median was 2 visits per month.

The mode was 2 visits per month.

The range was 3 visits per month.

Variety of Ages of Movie Attendants

Our target population was those who go to the movies. Our research showed that most that go to the movies are between the ages of 20-30. The youngest we polled was 11 and the oldest was 56. Most people go to the movies 1-2 times per month. The most popular type of movie that the people polled like to go see is comedy, which was chosen by 22 people or 44%. The most important points of the project we uncovered are that the favored type of movies spanned multiple generations and that there are more young adults that go to the movies than children or middle-aged people. The discoveries that we made were that, out of the people polled, most go to the movies 1-2 times a month, most people like to go see comedy movies and that most that go to the movies are between 20-30 years old. We did not uncover any unusual results during the course of this project. The results that the group gathered were rather typical and expected. Nothing unusual and shocking was uncovered during the polling. A way we would change and improve your project if we were to do it again would be to possibly increase the number of those polled to get a more clear reading of the preferences of the mass population, such as doubling the number of those polled. Another change that could be implemented is to possibly have more members in each group to be able to sufficiently gather more data and results. Another possible change is to make sure that each member of the group makes contact with the members within the first week of the project to make sure that the workload is properly distributed.
