A:

You’ve surveyed your community. Now it’s time for some basic arithmetic!

You’ll need to tally up the answers to the first three questions, checking that for each answer, you get the same overall total. For example:

 

SUPPORT answers

OPPOSE answers

TOTAL

Question 1

17

125

142

Question 2

27

115

142

Question 3

97

45

142

Then, calculate percentages. If your maths is a bit rusty, for the example above, this means:

  • 125 ➗ 142 x 100 = 88.03% of people surveyed in my electorate oppose Adani getting a $1 billion in public funding.
  • 17 ➗ 142 x 100 = 11.97% of people surveyed in my electorate do support Adani getting $1 billion in public funding.

Next up, select the most powerful statements given for Question 4. These are people’s messages for their MP. Present the best messages alongside your survey results to your MP.

Drop your survey results into this template - this will form part of the briefing pack you will deliver to your MP in person, and you can organise an online action too for local supporters to send this through to your MP with a personalised message.

When you have your results, share them with us at action@mail.acf.org.au - that way we can tell the big story of the overall results of all the surveys in all the electorates.
