I'm doing a math project in school involving statistics, which I need data for. I handed out surveys in the school, but there wasn't enough data. So, now I need you guys' help so that I can collect enough data and meet my deadline.
If you're a high school student (grade 8-12) or know a high school student (can be a friend, relative etc), please complete this survey:

1. Gender: M / F
3. Do you own an iPod? Yes / No
4. If so, how many iPods do you own?
Pick the iPod that you use the most (if you have multiple iPods), and answer the following questions regarding that iPod:
5. The colour of the iPod:
6. The capacity of the iPod (in mb or gb):
7. The cost of the iPod (before tax) CAD \$___________
8. The cost of the iPod (after tax) CAD \$___________
9. The year that you bought this iPod:
10. The model that you have (eg. 2nd generation nano, 1st generation shuffle):
11. In your opinion, what is the best iPod on the market right now?
iPod Classic/ iPod Nano/ iPod Shuffle/ iPod touch
12. What capacity of the iPod that you have selected above would you prefer?

For the cost, you can just put down whatever the cost in the currency that you bought it, I just put down CAD because that's what I have to use for my project. Please be sure to say what currency it was though.
For any questions that you don't know/have the answer to, just put down n/a or skip the question.
Also, you don't need to have an iPod to do this survey, just as long as you're a high school student.
Right now, I need: 5 Gr.8s, 30-35 Gr.9s, 5 Gr.10s, 30 Gr.11s and 5 Gr.12s. I will update the numbers daily as I get more surveys in. As you can see, I desperately need some Gr.9 & Gr.11s, but all other grades are welcome too !
Sorry for the really long post, and thanks a million for the help!!

Strange to see race involved, i never thought it would matter in such a question. The reason why i would bring it up is that you were not asked for it but you felt it was important to say it.

Sorry i guess i am lazy and did not read the whole thread before replying since i answered it when i should not have.

I didn't really know what the OP was looking for because he/she didn't indicate what they wanted out of nationality, so i figured I'd just throw it in there since "American" these days could mean a whole bunch of things

I mainly did it because those before me did and I thought it was needed or something.

This thread reminds me of the one (I think it was...) Rokem did a while back but with something to do with dominant hands.

YEAH you guys are awesome!! You have no idea how many surveys I got back that said they don't know the capacity, model or the year they got it. They basically just know the colour .
