Sampling, Data and Bias

This resource from Defence Dynamics presents the findings of a MORI poll in varied formats. Research is carried out regularly by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) to track attitudes of the public towards the Armed Forces over time, looking at differences between different sectors of the population and areas of the country, and attitudes to other public bodies. The student worksheets challenge students to extrapolate key findings, to review various data sources, identify key questions and bias. Students are encouraged to cross-reference and to interpret and evaluate findings.
