Conducted vicitim survey by Chloe Hayter
I conducted my survey on 5 participants at Richard Taunton Sixth Form College. All participants asked were between the ages of 16-20. My survey found that out of the 5 participants, 60% had illegally downloaded videos/music etc. Also, 60% of participants weren’t sure whether the punishments for committed crimes are strong enough and the remaining 40% thought that the punishments for committed crimes are not strong enough.
A weakness to my survey is that it isn’t very representative to the population, as it was only given to 5 participants at Richard Taunton Sixth Form College. Therefore, all participants were roughly the same age. Another weakness to my survey is that in question 2, I asked for the ages of participants, but two of the options were ‘Under 16′ and ’17-20′. Therefore, if the participant was 16 they wouldn’t have an option to choose. So to improve this I would change the second option to ’16-19’.
This graph shows what options the participants chose in the question: Have you been involved in any of the following crimes. This pie chart shows that a majority of the participants had illegally downloaded videos/music etc. Also, no participants had been involved in theft, vandalism, prostitution, rape, arson, assault, fraud and racism.
