Where do you put sport in your life?
Purpose of the survey
The goal of the survey was ti know where each person put sports in their life and to determine the reason why all people don't practice sport. The survey was also interested on what people do in their free time.
The sample was composed of people who responded to the survey on the internet address . More than 50% of the respondents were between 18 and 25 years old and considered exercise as moderatly important in their life. There was no difference between male and female respondent answers. The questionnaire was made of eight multiple choice question and two open-ended questions.
The results show taht 88% of the respondents don't practice sport because of their lack of time. Otherwise, when they practice sport, they spend between 2 and 4 hours per week to do exercise. More than the half respondents think tha they are in good shape, but 1/3 are a little overweight. 30% of the people take the homeworks after school. 65% of the respondent prefer exercising that watching TV.
I think that most of the respondents answered that they practice sports whith their friends because of their age. Most of them are aged between 18 and 25 years old and at this age, collective sports like hockey, baseball and basketball are more popular. Also, most of the respondents do homework after school instead of practicing sports. even if i tought that people watched a lot of television,I was surprised to realise that more than 50% of the respondents watch an hour or less of TV per day.
Many factors influence the respondents in their choice heads to sport. However, I think people really like exercising but the lack of time, caused by school, prevents them from doing sports. Nevertheless, the survey wasn't representative because the sample was not diversitied in age category. The survey would need more older respondents because more than half were aged between 18 and 25. Finally, I think the exercise situation of society is going well but it would be interessting to know if people took the survey seriously.

Montreal city

Montreal city

Hello, my mane is Jean-David Lemieux, I’m 21 years old and I have live in Montreal for four years. Before I lived in Rivière-Du-Loup with my family. I moved to Montreal, because I began an aircraft program in St-Hubert. Since I live on this beautiful city, I live near of the Olympique stadium, in the Hochelaga neighbohood. It is a poor area, but there are many advantages to living here. For example, the apartments are not expensive, the subway is near and there are many big parks. Montreal is a good city, but the people are very alone, independent and stressed. It is very difficult to make new friends. Also, there is a lot of pollution in the air and on the streets. Montreal is a big sociocultural city. Every days, there is a music show, and I like that. Also there are many bars for each style and each day. To finish, I think that I will live in Montreal for the rest of my life, because of the jobs and the city.
