Survey Summary

   First of all, we would like to express our gratitude to all respondents who participated in our survey monkey research. Those results were quite useful and beneficial for us.

   In all, 12 people have joined our survey so far. Though this number might not be good enough to deduce the conclusion, it helped us a lot to understand the common recognition of animal rights today.

   In our survey result, we found some interesting facts. First, respondents, especially young people, show their strong interests in animal rights. This surprised us so much, because initially we had thought ordinary people were not so curious about animals or their rights. At the same time, we were glad to know that people are eager to know the situation about animals. On the other hand, the result suggested that most respondents did not know much about the specific issues about animal rights, like experiment on animals or whale hunting. Those people who answered our questions are probably coming from Japan, and their average age is mostly between 15 and 20.

   Also, we were impressed by the result which shows what kind of animals are popular or unpopular.
 Many of them answered that they prefer cats to dogs. We assume that this is because our respondents were young. Young people these days, especially in Japan, like to watch cute cats movies on video sites, like Youtube. As a result of that, they have begun to realize the true allure of cats, we suppose.

   Another surprising thing is that few people showed their attachment to whale and fish. We could not find out why those people dislike them, but this might be because the number of our survey responses was too small to measure the true tendency.

   All in all, this survey instructed us quite useful information. Lastly, we want to thank you all respondents, again!

Thank you for your cooperation. Cheers!!

  1. This is an excellent summary of your survey results with some genuine analysis and commentary.

    I suppose that people don't feel quite as much attachment to fish or whales because they live in a different medium (water) and it's more difficult to get close to them, even when we have fish as pets. Although whales are fellow mammals, and you would think that would make us have more affinity toward them, they are more frequently grouped with fish (esp. by Japanese), making it harder to feel a closeness to them.

    I'm glad you were able to find out that there was more interest in animal rights among young people than you expected initially.
