Phase Two: Flagler College Students and JUUL
Mail   Print   Twitter   Facebook

Introduction:


On the first phase of this project, the juuling habits of a sample of 150 Flagler College students from fall semester 2018 was explored.  In this phase of the report, this same sample of 150 students will be divided into two smaller samples. The two samples are the sample of Flagler College students who do believe JUULing on campus should be banned and do not believe JUULing on campus should be banned. For purposes of this report, the two samples will be defined with a simple phrase. Students who believe JUULs should be banned will be called “Want ban” students who do not believe JUULs should be banned will be called “Do not want ban”.  There are 83 Students who do not want JUULs to be banned and 67 who believe they should be banned.

Students surveyed answered many other questions.  They reported the number of friends they know who use JUUL products, if they had seen someone else using JUUL products on campus, and if they believe fruit flavored products are less harmful. In this report, three comparisons will be investigated.  First, a comparison will be made between the reported number of friends known to use JUUL between the students who want ban and do not want ban. Then the responses to if they have seen someone use JUUL products on campus and if they believe fruit flavored JUUL products are less harmful between Students who want ban and do not want ban.


Comparison #1: Number of Friends Known to Use JUUL


The following stacked boxplots and corresponding summary statistics represent the number of friends who use JUUL and if the student believes whether or not it should be banned on campus. The median number of people who believe that JUUl should be banned had an average of 2 friends that use JUUL. The median of those who believed that it should be allowed on campus had an average of 5 friends who use a JUUL. The lower quartile was between 1 and 3 and the upper quartile is between 5 and 10. The minimum and maximum of both is between 0 and 25. Both groups had outliers. In fact, the upper fence of 35 for students who believed JUULs should be allowed on FC campus is higher than the upper fence of 30 for students who believed that JUULs should be banned from FC campus. This proves my theory that the more friends a student has that uses JUUL would be in favour of it being allowed on campus. Furthermore, the IQR is between 4 and 7 friends that use JUUL. Therefore, the data shows that the number of friends that use JUUL has an effect on whether or not a student believes that it should banned or allowed on campus.

Comparison #2: If they have Seen Someone Use a JUUL on FC Campus


The following split bar plot shows that Students who believe JUULs should be banned on FC Campus and Students who believe JUULs should be allowed did not differ greatly in their responses to seeing someone else use JUUL products in school. 88.1% of Students who want ban have seen someone use JUUL in school while 11.9% have not seen someone use JUUL in school. 92.8% of Students who do not believe JUULs should be banned on FC Campus have seen someone use a JUUL and 7.2% have not. This goes to show a vast majority of people have seen someone use a JUUL in school whether or not they believe JUULs should be banned on FC Campus.

Comparison #3: Did they think fruit flavored JUUL products were less harmful?

 

The following contingency table compares the responses to whether or not fruit flavored pods were more harmful than tobacco flavored pods by if Juuls should be banned or allowed on campus.  Overall, 37 out of the 150 students surveyed believe that fruit flavored pods are more harmful than tobacco flavored pods while 113 students do not. Thus, 24.7% (37/150) of all the students surveyed feel that fruit flavored pods are less harmful than tobacco flavored pods. Therefore, the majority of the students surveyed feel that fruit flavored pods are not less harmful than tobacco flavored pods.

 

Of the 67 students that believe Juuls should be banned on FC Campus surveyed, 11 feel that fruit flavored pods are less harmful than tobacco flavored pods and of the 83 students that believe Juuls should be allowed on campus surveyed, 26 feel that fruit flavored pods are less harmful than tobacco flavored pods. That is, 16.4% (11/67) of the students that believe Juuls should be banned from FC Campus feel that fruit flavored pods are less harmful than tobacco flavored pods while 31.3% (26/83) of the students that believe Juuls should be allowed on campus feel that fruit flavored pods are less harmful than tobacco flavored pods. Thus, approximately 15% more of the students that believe Juuls should be banned from campus feel that fruit flavored pods are less harmful than tobacco flavored pods. There is certainly a significant difference in opinion on whether or not fruit flavored pods were more harmful than tobacco flavored pods caused by whether or not Juuls should be banned or allowed on campus between these groups.

Conclusion:


In this comparison of the opinions between the students surveyed who do not feel JUUL should be banned on FC Campus and the students who do believe JUUL should be banned on FC Campus did not differ greatly based on the number of people they have seen use JUUL products in school. It was found, though, that the two groups did differ in the number of friends who had used a JUUL.  The students who did not believe JUULs should be banned on FC Campus had more friends who use JUULs than the students who believed JUULs should be banned on campus. This phenomenon is not surprising. If a student supports the use of JUUL on campus it is more likely they have friends that use JUULs. There was also a difference in opinion when it came to whether or not Fruit Flavored products were more or less harmful than tobacco products between Students who believe and do not believe in banning JUULS. More of the students that believe Juuls should be banned from campus feel that fruit flavored pods are less harmful than tobacco flavored pods.
