PHASE TWO: Flagler College Students and Censorship Views


Introduction:

The first phase of this project explored a sample of 150 Flagler College students and their views on censorship. In this phase of the report, the sample size of 150 students will be split up into two smaller groups. The two smaller groups are Flagler College students that believe violence desensitizes people and students who do not believe that violence desensitizes people. For this report, I have shortened the names to, “Desensitized Students” and “Non-Desensitised Students.” The group titled, “Desensitised Students” is referring to the group of students who answered yes, for the question, “Do violent programs desensitize viewers?” Whereas the “Non-Desensitised Students” group refers to the group that responded no, violent programs do not desensitize viewers. There are 79 Non-Desensitised students, and 71 Desensitized students.


During this survey many other questions were asked of the students, for this report I will be comparing three of said questions: How many hours of unwanted content are they exposed to, should the government filter profanity in television shows and/or movies, and finally, should the government decide what television shows people can see? The first comparison will be one of the numeric responses, how many hours of unwanted content are they exposed to? Then the response of should profanity be filtered by the government, and lastly should the government control what is viewable?


Comparison #1: Amount of Times Exposure to Unwanted Content per Week

The following stacked boxplots and then summary statistics show the responses of Desensitised students and Non-Desensitised students, and the amount of time they are exposed to unwanted content. There was one outlier where a student said they were exposed 20 times to unwanted content, that was removed.

 

For the overall answers, there was not much variation in answers between the Desensitised and Non-Desensitised students. The median, minimum, and quartile 1, were the same for both the Desensitised and Non-Desensitised students, at 0 times. Additionally, the third quartiles for both groups of students were also the same at one time; because of the same quartile one and quartile three for both groups, both had the same interquartile range of 1 time. Additionally, both groups maximums were the same at ten instances. As previously stated the outlier of 20 instances of exposure to unwanted content was removed. Through these results, it can be seen that the amount of times of exposure to unwanted content does not show any real difference between a students opinion of whether or not violence desensitizes people.

Comparison #2: Should the Government Filter Profanity in Television shows and Movies?

The split bar plot below shows that Desensitised and Non-Desensitised did not differ in their response of whether or not the government should control profanity. Approximately 94% of students think that the government should not filter profanity and approximately 6% of both groups think that the government should. Regardless of the opinion of whether or not violent programs desensitize people, both groups believe the government should not filter profanity.

Comparison #3: Should the Government Control what Programs are Viewable?

The contingency table below compares the responses of opinions of whether or not the government should control what programs are viewable between Desensitised and Non-Desensitised students. Overall 144 out of the 150 students surveyed answered “No” the government should not control what programs are viewable, where six believe the government should. Therefore, 96% (144/160) thus the majority, of all of the students surveyed believe the government should not control viewable programs.


Of the 79 Non-Desensitised students, 77 feel the government should not control what programs are viewable, and of the 71 Desensitized students 67 feel the government should not control what programs are viewable. That is 97.47%(77/79) of the Non-Desensitised students feel the government should not control what programs are viewable, whereas 94.37%(67/79) of the Desensitized students feel the government should not control what programs are viewable. Therefore approximately 3% more of the Non-Desensitised students feel the government should not control what programs are viewable. This is certainly interesting that both groups agree that the government should not control what programs are viewable.

Conclusion:

In this report, the comparison between the students surveyed who believe that violent programs desensitise viewers (Desensitised Students) and those who were surveyed believe that violent programs do not desensitise viewers (Non-Desensitised Students), it was found that these two groups did not differ much in the amount of time they were exposed to unwanted content, whether the government should filter profanity in television or movies, and finally whether or not the government should control what programs are viewable.
