A recent survey asked respondents about the number of resolutions they've made in the past, and how many of those resolutions were kept.

The following box plot shows the percentage of kept resolutions by respondents:

There is no significant difference in the percentage of kept resolutions between males and females.

It is also interesting that the lower quartile is 0 for both genders. This means at least 25% of respondents have never kept a resolution.

It appears the typical person (male or female) keeps less than 40% of their resolutions. I am surprised the percentage is even that high!
