Technology Demographic Profile

This podcast details the findings of a survey about technology and media use conducted with the help of participants that represent a wide age range, from sixteen to sixty-five.   Due to a yearlong maternity leave, the respondants profiled are friends, family and former students now in college.   After collecting the data, it became apparent that most of the respondents were women, and that is interesting in and of itself because the social networking site, Facebook, was used as the means of distributing the questionnaire. Perhaps it is indicative of the likelihood of women using and communicating via this site more as opposed to men.  

The data collected can be viewed in two ways, one displaying the answers from the open ended questions (Profile-Full), and the other showing only the numerical data (Pofile-data).  The Questionnaire used in creating the profile can also be viewed in PDF format (Questionnaire).
