Survey Analysis Report – Joshua White, Caleb Hecker, and Sam Polifka

With our in class survey we tried to figure out how much people knew about labor trafficking. Our targeted audience was Midwest American citizens because we are so secluded and don’t hear about anything with human trafficking out here. We obtained our results through the website survey monkey. We choose survey monkey because it allowed us to obtain more people than just people in Mcpherson and with efficiency. The biggest challenge with using the free version of survey monkey it allowed a certain amount of questions we could ask which prevented us from asking all the questions that we desired to ask.

  1. Have you heard of human trafficking before?

  2. Do you think it happens in the United States?

  3. Is it important to work towards preventing human trafficking?

  4. If yes, do you think the government should be doing something about preventing human trafficking?

  5. Do you think that labor unions would be able to prevent human labor trafficking?

  6. Which do you believe is correct?

  7. What do you think is the main reason people go into human labor trafficking?

  8. Do you feel that human trafficking is a problem in America?

  9. Is human trafficking a big problem?

    The results of our survey was made up with an amount of 63 people.


    Your results are composed of 63 people and of those 63 people 51% were aged 18 to 24 years old. 94% of the people that surveyed they agree that it takes place in the United States. Of all the people that surveyed only 87% of people feels like human trafficking is a big problem but only 83% believes it happens in the United States. 94% of the people surveyed feels that the government should do something, but 81% of people feels that labor unions would not stop labor trafficking. Of the people surveyed 96% believes that human trafficking is a growing problem, while the same amount of people thinks it’s important to prevent it.

I think what surprised me most is that the people who we surveyed didn ‘t believe that labor unions could help prevent labor trafficking. Another thing that surprised me was that people thought it is happening in the U.S. but not as many think it is a problem.It was confirmed that  people believe that it is important to work to prevent human trafficking. The biggest things i got from the survey was that most people have heard about human trafficking. I think i would just like to find out the answers to the other questions we couldn’t ask. I will use some of this information to point out that  people think that the government should be doing something about human trafficking and that more people have heard about human trafficking than I thought for sure.


     If we were to do this survey over again we would probably get the full version of survey monkey so that we can get all desired question. Overall we found this project not too difficult and a fun and easy way of see others people’s perspective on human trafficking.
