Edmonds Survey and Results

This is where the multiple choice section of the survey ends. We do have two more open end questions, but I’ll be addressing those in a separate post. Questions and comments are greatly appreciated! This is my first research project conducted publicly, I’m proud of the work I’ve done, but I am also looking forward to what I can improve. In the end, we had 123 surveys to analyze. Makes me glad that I have a group to divvy up the workload.
