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.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
