Large Datasets from stats4schools

These datasets from stats4schools are compiled from the responses given by over 1,500 people to a survey. They are intended to be used flexibly but some ideas are given to guide students in their interrogations. There are three sheets in each set

  1. Decoded data
  2. An explanation of the questions that were asked in the survey
  3. The type of responses given by the participants.

The datasets in this collection are:

  • Careers- growing up and going to work. What are the career ambitions of UK residents?
  • Fruit and Veg - do people eat enough fruit and veg? Are people in the north more likely to eat fruit than those in the south?
  • Shopping - how do people do their shopping? Is it easier if you drive or walk to the shops?
  • Smoking - who is more likely to smoke? What is the most popular type of tobacco? This data will allow students to look at the smoking habits of over 1,000 participants.
