What Was I Thinking?

Opinions on OccupyLSX around the UK

Between 12:36pm on Monday 17th October 2011 and 10:14am Wednesday 19th October 2011 I used real-time sentiment-monitoring tool Qriously to poll approximately 20,000* people in the UK on the Occupy London Stock Exchange movement.

I asked “OccupyLSX – worthwhile?” Respondents were asked to rate their answer an a 10-point scale between “Waste of Time” and “Worthy Cause”

900 people responded. Here’s what they said:

Slider showing that responded had a slight affinity towards "Worthy Cause" for Occupy LSX. 900/900 answers, 28,070 views

Line graph showing spikes around 150 people at the far end of the "Waste of Time" side, 180 at the "Worth Cause" extreme and a small spike around 100 people at central "Waste of Time" option. There's a fairly even spread across the mid-range of each choice with a small bias towards Worthy Cause.

Map of the UK split into regions. Wales, East England, West Midlands and Scotland favouring "Waste of Time" with the rest of the UK favouring "Worthy Cause"

NB: Qriously is an app still in trial stages. The sample will be biased towards people willing to try pre-release software.

*qriously provides a count of question views, not actual users polled. Views will be counted up to twice per user, meaning that the actual number of users who saw the question lies somewhere between 14,035 and 28,070.
