Nosemonkey's EUtopia

In search of a European identity

Statistical help needed

OK, people, I’m trying to number-crunch the demographics of the participants of this weekend’s Tomorrow’s Europe poll to see whether they really can be seen as “representative” of the EU as a whole. But my statistical knowledge is non-existent – anyone fancy giving me a hand?


Update: The questions I need answered can be found here, the stats themselves either as a Google spreadsheet (login as readers (, password: readers), or as a downloadable Excel file. Ta again.


  1. In ethical theory one cannot have true representation ( except from a 100% group ) one cannot really represent a group of people .
    What is represented is a point of view or an opinion seen from a particular viewpoint .

  2. Erm, at first glance my impression was that single people with a tertiary education are more inclined to participate in this sort of survey than the average.

    Does that help?
