Geography- analysis of graphs

Extracts from this document...


In this section I will be analyzing the graphs which I have produced. The graphs were produced using the data I collected during the investigation. The reason for doing this is because I will be able to suggest reasons as to why the people I interviewed selected the answers they chose. I also will be able to, in detail, make comments on the answers of the people I interviewed. By doing this I can also make comparisons between different graphs. By linking these together I would be able to come up with a conclusion for this study. The first question I asked when I was interviewing was for the person's age. As you can see from the graph above it shows that out of the 100 people I interviewed most of them where in the ages of 16-24 and 25-33. Overall I interviewed a reasonable number of people from each age group. I can compare the graph which showed age with a graph that showed how people travelled to Birmingham City centre. ...read more.


The majority of bus users went to the Birmingham City Centre to shop. These were mainly from group F (60+). They said using a bus was cheaper due to them having a bus pass at cheaper rates but also because, since they used a bus they wouldn't have to spend time finding a car parking space. Buses also came frequently to bus stops throughout the day, so in this way people didn't spend time in traffic jams, as they would if they travelled using a car. Some of the people I interviewed lived closer to the Birmingham City Centre. The majority of those people travelled using a train. This was mainly because of the fact it was a lot cheaper and a lot quicker to reach the Birmingham City Centre. The majority of people who travelled to the Birmingham city centre to shop and for leisure also said that they would like to see more pedestrianised areas. ...read more.


However some said that the service of public transport was satisfactory and needed improving. The graph above shows the amount of people who said what they thought about whether public transport needs to be improved. As seen above 55% of people said that they wanted public transport to be improved. However 10% said that they strongly disagreed with the idea. A lot of car users said that they agreed with improving public transport. Many said that if public transport was improved, they would use it instead of using cars. In contrast, many long term users of public transport said it was fine the way it currently was and didn't need improving. Most people who said that public transport needed improving came from groups A (16-24) and B (25-33). However the majority of people in groups D (52-60) and E (60+) said that it didn't need improving. This also showed that from previous analysis, interviewees that were in the older age groups used public transport more, and found that it was cheaper. ?? ?? ?? ??
