Hypothesis of Geography Coursework

Extracts from this document...


Hypothesis 3 That people who shop in Cardiff are more satisfied with the facilities available than they are with those in Tredegar I believe that people who shop in Cardiff are more satisfied with the facilities such as cafes, restaurants and parking that are available than the shoppers are with those in Tredegar. I think this because Cardiff is a large city that attracts tourists; it is a centre of commerce and has many shopping complexes. Therefore the local council may have an interest in keeping visitors to the city happy as they bring money into the town which in turn keeps the traders happy as they will make money.

CAFES AND RESTAURANTS It can be seen from the graph above that 80% of the shoppers questioned in Tredegar were satisfied or very satisfied with the cafes and restaurants in the town. It can also be seen that 90% of the shoppers questioned in Cardiff were satisfied or very satisfied. I think more people were satisfied in Cardiff because there is a lot more choice available.

I have also found that the people in Cardiff said the worst problem in Tredegar was parking as 48% of people questioned were dissatisfied or very dissatisfied. These graphs also show me that the questions and responses would need to be looked at in a little more detail to prove or disprove my hypothesis. This is because I have found that the responses from both areas are very similar. Kelly Clark ...read more.
