  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is lesson 274.

  • The title of today's lesson is the difference

  • between poll and survey. Yeah.

  • Sometimes I get student ask me, you know,

  • the question what's the difference between

  • a poll on a survey. So that's what

  • we're going to cover here. All tight.

  • Let's take a look at that note.

  • A poll usually just focuses on one question.

  • A single question, and will often have

  • multiple choice answers. Sometimes

  • only two. Like if it were two candidates

  • running for office, you know.

  • Do you vote for this person or that person ?

  • Sometimes it could be in the primaries,

  • where there's three, four or five candidates.

  • and then your multiple

  • choice will be you know A this person,

  • B this person, C or they may even have

  • another as a choice too. Polls tend to

  • be political in nature. Yeah. So we're

  • probably going to have more polls about

  • politics than, than most other things.

  • Often directly about voting or being in

  • favor or against some issue, some issue

  • in society or maybe some issue that the

  • government is going to be voting on

  • Whether you're for it or against it. So, Yeah.

  • So polls tend to be mostly this way.

  • So you got like fifty, fifty-five percent

  • for it. Forty -five percent against it. Or

  • they may have undecided as a possible

  • option as well. Okay. Let's continue. Polls

  • are often paid by a company , political party,

  • news network , etc. Yeah some may

  • after worrying I mean there's been more

  • talk recently how how easy it is

  • sometimes to skew polls. You know

  • especially since it's just one question.

  • Very often you know, a lot of the

  • political parties or news networks when

  • they take a poll. Sometimes they want it

  • to favor one side or another. Whatever,

  • whatever their agenda is, in favor of

  • they want it to favor that. So sometimes

  • they could skew a poll several ways.

  • Sometimes they can do it with what they

  • call oversampling. Maybe if they ask more

  • people in one area or in one party than

  • another party. That could actually skew a

  • poll. Or maybe they might revert they may

  • change the question in such a way that

  • it would favor whatever outcome they

  • want. And then there's even more talk

  • that there might be even more ways to

  • skew poles today, because a lot of times

  • since the companies that are paying for

  • them want certain results they know that

  • these companies can actually buy

  • Information on people like them you know,

  • Facebook or Twitter and they could check

  • out you know, what websites you go to, or

  • if you post anything, and then they have

  • a really good, then really good idea

  • which side you may vote for. So polls can

  • be skewed. So you got to be very careful about polls.

  • All right. Let's take a look at a survey,

  • What's a survey ? A survey will usually

  • ask many questions, and may have a very

  • wide range of questions. Surveys are usually

  • more time-consuming. Yeah. Because

  • they may ask 10 questions or 20 questions.

  • So that could sometimes take

  • time and many are done by companies to

  • get feedback on their products and services.

  • Yeah. Some companies they want this.

  • They want to know if somebody tried their product

  • before or have they ever heard of their company ?

  • or what do they do they like or don't like.

  • So the questions can vary,

  • and you know, you could have someone

  • standing there for a while asking the questions.

  • So a lot of times when you're stopped in the streets,

  • especially by like students or do something.

  • And they'll ask, will you do this ?

  • You might be standing there for about 5 minutes or 10

  • minutes or something answering all their questions

  • So surveys tend to be longer, and they

  • may have many many more questions.

  • Okay. Let's continue, my company

  • to feedback on the products that some

  • other surveys could be done by researchers

  • as well to collect on information

  • about a particular subject.

  • You know, maybe something to do with

  • psychology or sociology could be

  • anything like that. Because surveys are

  • more time-consuming, respondents are

  • sometimes offered a free gift to participate.

  • Well they know, that you know,

  • the average person doesn't want to stand

  • there for five or ten minutes. So maybe

  • they'll offer you some T-shirt or a pen

  • or it's usually something that's pretty

  • cheap. But still it's for free. So

  • sometimes people do it. That's what they

  • may do in order to encourage you to take

  • your time to answer the survey. Okay.

  • Anyway I hope it's kind of clear. I hope

  • you can see like the big difference

  • between poll it's usually just a single

  • question and just a little multiple

  • choice answer.Surveys are usually many

  • questions and multiple, you know , many

  • many questions and of course they offer

  • you sometimes a free gift on it and

  • often done for feedback. Okay, Anyway , I hope

  • you got it . I hope it id clear. Thank you for your time . Bye-bye.
