Geography NEA - questionnaire data presentation

Hi, I'm currently doing my AQA geography NEA, and my question is to do with the difference in deprivation and lived experience in two different wards. I have created two seperate google forms questionnaires, asking questions about how social factors affect their perception and lived experience in the ward. I have a couple yes/no questions, some multiple choice, and some open answer questions. I am unsure how to present this data, and whether I should use a different data presentation technique for each question asked for both the questionnaires. I feel like this will be too much data and will look confusing.
Sorry you've not had any responses about this. :frown: Are you sure you've posted in the right place? :smile: Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there. :redface:

hiya, i also did a human-based question for my NEA and struggled with data presentation at first - my general piece of advice would be that it's unlikely that you'll ever have too much data presentation! (my friend wrote 17,000 words and got full marks :0) i got a mark of 54/60, and used a variety of data presentation, including: pie charts, scatter graphs + bar graphs. for your open answer questions, i would suggest making 'word clouds', and potentially colour-coding different types of words for different opinions (e.g. positive or negative), so that you can compare this data in a quantitative sense also.
if you are able to use some sort of stats test as well, this will deffo improve your mark! if you are comparing two wards, i wonder if a t-test or chi-squared test might be applicable? it's not fully necessary though, as i didn't use one.
try not to use the same sort of data presentation technique too many times, but as long as you analyse your data well underneath, you should be good!
hope this helped:smile:

I did mine on microsoft forms and used the tables it made for me, made it a lot quicker to write about as I had nearly 20 questions, got an A for it too, it’s mostly about how much in depth you write rather than stressing to make your own tables. Use the ones they provide with your data 🙂

gentrification is definitely a valid topic! i know a few people who decided to focus on this. as long as you make sure you're confident that you have enough secondary resources as well as being able to collect your own data, then you can draw some good comparisons between the area beforehand and afterwards :smile:
