Phase two: Flagler College Students and Online Shopping
Mail   Print   Twitter   Facebook


On the first phase of this project, descriptive statistics were used to explore the shopping habits of Flagler students. The first phase of the project answered summary questions, such as “What type of shopper are you?” and “Approximately how many times a year do you going shopping in stores for pleasure?”. On this phase of the report, three questions will be explored based on the sample results to investigate the association between three different pairs of data.

The three questions are:

1. How often do students shop online?

2. Do students tend to shop at local businesses rather than online?

3. Is shopping online easier for students?

Question #1: How often do students shop online?

The majority of the students in the sample plan to shop online in the future; 54% of the students surveyed plan to shop online in the future and 54% said that they would not. These results are shown by the given pie chart below. 


The boxplot displays the distribution of data based on the five number summary. The boxplot results were similar in that the surveyed students responses for “yes” and “no” were very similar. There was an outlier for students who said yes at 30.


Result 3 shows the summary statistics for the data, including the n, min, Q1, median, Q3, max, and IQR. The survey results for the future of shopping were similar in that the min, Q1, median, Q3, and IQR are the same values, meaning that the relationship between the future of shopping and the online orders per month is strong.



Question #2: Do students tend to shop at local businesses rather than online?


According to the data 81.33% of students shop at local business and only 18.67% shop online. To answer the question yes students rather shop at local businesses. 


A split bar graph was created to give a visual representation of how many students would rather shop in store than online. The two slices represent the categories of “yes” and “no” and shows the comparison in the data size. The chart also provides the results as a percentage and a number data label. There are 94 more people that would rather shop at a local business rather than online. 






Question #3: Is shopping online easier for students?

According to the data shopping online is easier for 68% of the students and is not easier for only 32% of the students. 

The split graph shows the comparison of males and females shopping in local businesses. According to the data 70% of females shop in local businesses and only 30% of males do. This proves that females tend to go shopping in local businesses more than males do. 


The contingency table shows the correlation of gender and whether students prefer to shop online or in stores. 118 students out of the 150 students surveyed prefer to shop in stores rather than online. A significant amount more females were surveyed than males so the data is more accurate for females.


Overall, 23.3% of the students (32 out of 150) reported that they shopped more online, and 78.7% of the students (118 out of 150) reported they shop in store more. Out of the 105 females that were surveyed 78.1% shop in store and 21.9% shop online. Out of the 45 males surveyed 80% shop in store and 20% prefer online shopping. 

Therefore, based on these results males tend to shop in store more and females tend to shop online more.
