The conflict between Religion & Science SURVEY

This is an assignment that will require you to collect information from other people.
I have placed the assignment at the beginning of the Unit so you can start collecting the information right away to have plenty of time to analyze the results.

For this assignment, you will run a survey.

The survey has to present the opinion of a minimum of 10 individuals. Individuals must be 18 or older.
Before you start, you should read the survey collected by the Pew Research Center: Religion and Science in the United States.

You can use this report as a guideline.

Your survey consists of 10 questions. Eight of the questions are below, but you have to create the other two. Think about what else you would like to ask about the subject that could, at the same time, enhance the overall information of the survey.

ONCE YOU HAVE THE RESULTS, YOU MUST PRESENT AND SUBMIT A REPORT WITH:

(REPORT MUST BE SUBMITTED IN PDF FORMAT)

  • Title of the report (10%)
  • Introduction to the survey (20%)

Example of information to include in the introduction: What is the main subject of the survey? how many people participated? how were the participant chosen? What was the intent of the survey? What the survey anonymous? Did you ask the questions personally or though email, social media, mail?

  • Answers to the survey (30%)

Present the answer to each of the questions. You can use written percentages, pie charts, bar charts, etc.. There are many tools online to help with this part ( here is one: https://www.meta-chart.com/) (Links to an external site.) The format should be easy to read, analyze and comprehend.

  • Summary and conclusions to the report (30%)

These are some ideas to include in the conclusions:

Describe your experience. How receptive the participants were, Were the questions easy to ask and understand? Did participants think the questions were easy to answer?

Was the group survey big and diverse enough to extrapolate the results? What would you change? What questions would you like to add or change?

Explain what you learned from the results about the population surveyed: This part should remain objective, do your best to state and compare the results without adding your opinion and be clear when you add your interpretation of the results.

For example 95% of the people surveyed stated there is a conflict between religion and science, but surprisingly only 5% of them think their own believes are in conflict. This makes me wonder what religious believes the individuals surveyed share with religion they belong to.
