PHASE ONE – FLAGLER COLLEGE STUDENTS & TRAVEL 

 

INTRODUCTION: 

The purpose of this study is to explore the travel tendencies and opinions regarding travel of Flagler College students during the fall semester of 2018. In particular, this report mainly displays the amount of times students have traveled to and from other countries, their personal opinions of traveland if they believe Flagler College should require at least one term studying abroad. 

DATA COLLECTION: 

Phase one of this project looks at the travel habits and opinions of Flagler College students during the fall semester of 2018. One hundred and fifty students were surveyed from MAT 223 Statistics. These results are not necessarily representative of the entire population of Flagler College as only students enrolledin Statistics for this semester answered the survey questions. Bias may exist within sampling as only a small non-random amount of students from the Flagler College population were surveyed. Measurement bias may be present as well as the student self-reported their answers.  

 

SURVEY QUESTIONS: 

1.   What gender do you identify with? 

2.   How old are you? 

3.   What type of vacations do you prefer 

4.   Do you like to travel? 

5.   How many times have you traveled outside of your native country? 

6.   Approximately how many different countries besides your own have you visited? 

7.   Do you think it is necessary to travel to a different country in order to enhance your tolerance for diversity, or is traveling alone enough? 

8.   Do you think traveling will give you a real-life education that you will not be able to get without traveling? 

9.   Many colleges offer a J-Mester (in January) or May-Mester (in May) which lasts approximately three weeks. The courses offered during the shortened term are not necessarily the traditional courses offered in the academic year. Many of the courses involve travel. If Flagler College offered a shortened term, would you prefer a J-Mester or a May-Mester? 

10. If Flagler College offered a shortened term, do you think all Flagler College students should be required to participate in one term which involves travel? 

 

SAMPLE DATA: 

CATEGORICAL & NUMERICAL DATA: 

The gender of students is displayed in the pie chart below. The majority of the student responses are from females, at 72.67%, which is roughly three times as many males who reported at 27.33%.

The age of the students surveyed is displayed in the histogram below. The distribution is unimodal and right skewed with three potential outliers at the ages of 35 and 40. Since the distribution is right skewed, the best measure of center is the median of 18 years old and the best measure of spread is the IQR of 1 year. Thus, the typical age of the students surveyed was 18 years old and most students were within 1 year of 18 years old.

The type of vacation preferred by the students surveyed is displayed in the pie chart below. Within the four categories, Variety is the mode, at 55.33%. Beach Trips follow in second place, at 19.33%. Nature is third, with 13.33%. And finally, the City is last, with 12% of students surveyed preferring it.

The number of times traveled outside your country aside from your own is assessed in the histogram below. The data is skewed to the right leaving the median to be the best measure of center and the IQR as the best measures of spread. The mode is 0 which means the majority of students have not traveled outside of their native countries. A potential outlier may be at 50 times, but it is necessary to the data set as it is likely a student has traveled that many times.

The number of countries students have traveled to is displayed in the histogram below. The data is right-skewed as the mode is between 0 and 2.5 for countries traveled to. The median is 2 which is the best measure of center as it lies within the mode. The IQR is 5 and is the best measure of spread.
