  • No sorry, you appear to have misunderstood. What was the sample size. ie How many people were actually surveyed. Not what number of people they are purporting to represent.

    Far more important than the number of people surveyed is how they were selected. Any survey / opinion poll will only actually ask a tiny fraction of the population.

    RAJAR sends surveys to their sample group of 110,000 over-15 year-olds over a period of 50 weeks. 
    Rather than asking, look at the FAQ on their website: www.rajar.co.uk

    No. You submitted the data, you explain it. You still haven't given the sample group.

    It is not "far more important", but yes, it is important.

    Erm... I have highlighted it above. That is the sample group for the date I quoted from the RAJAR website.
  • Incorrect, all you said is that they send surveys to a sample group, not how many are actually completed, and therefore the actual sample group. But if we in good will take your assumption at face value, it works out at 2115 listeners/week. Even less that the 5000 i quoted.

    I suggest you look at the RAJAR website to determine how they work, and your number is only the proportion of those surveyed, not the extrapolated number of actual listeners. By the number of complaints received there are well in excess of 5,000 listeners to the BBC.
  • Your assignment of 'extrapolated' and 'actual' as meaning the same thing tells me all i need to know. Thanks.
