Children’s surveys are a rarity. The internet is awash with surveys and polls aimed at adults but children are seldom consulted, let alone listened to.
Our surveys try to discover how children think, what interests them, when they want to do things, where they want to go and how they think the world should be organized.
We invite children to answer a couple of simple questions each week. You will probably see the questions when you first visit the website in any particular week – they appear as a non-intrusive pop-up that you can either interact with or ignore. If you choose to answer the questions then it will usually take only a couple of clicks and no more than half a minute of your time to provide the answers. If you choose to ignore the pop-up then you’ll not be troubled again until you visit us again the next week.
We don’t think it is sensible or fair that surveys be the exclusive territory of adults. Consequently we decided several months ago to give young people a voice by providing a way for you to convey your thoughts in absolute anonymity without any interference from adults!
Our weekly survey results provide you with an interesting way to discover the likes and dislikes of your peers. You can gain a more rounded view of the opinions and views of other children, not just your own friends and family.
You will also find that the graphs and charts provide you with an introduction to statistics and market research. When you become an adult you’ll find that analysis and scrutiny of facts is all around you and never forget that you’ll constantly be bombarded with surveys and polls!
You will notice that every time we run a survey we request that the answerer provides their age. When the answer given is “over 18”, or no answer is given, we exclude the data from our data and charts to ensure that the results are not corrupted – after all, we are exclusively looking for the views and opinions of children.
The surveys give us an opportunity to find out what kids REALLY think. Without market research we cannot know what it is that the children want and how we can best help them.
You will see from the list below that the surveys are very wide ranging. What would you expect are favourite school subjects? Where do you think children would most like to go on holiday? Which foreign languages do you think children would most like to speak? The surveys provide the answers and you might be extremely surprised at some of the results.
At the foot of each results page we provide a table that shows the principal results of the survey but if you need further data for a specific research project then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Whenever you want to understand the children around you a little better we encourage you to delve into this statistical resource. Apart from anything else, it really is fun!
We use programming provided by the Hotjar company – it is what they refer to as Hotjar Polls. All the results are completely anonymous and we never have any personal details about the respondents.
The high volume of traffic to the Education Quizzes site means that we can obtain credible statistical accuracy very quickly. We typically get over 1,000 responses in a week so we seldom run a survey for longer than that.
