    MoneySaving Poll: Are you going on holiday this summer? 19th Jul 16 at 10:47 AM
    Poll started 19 July 2016

    Are you going on holiday this summer?

    The big summer getaway is about to begin. Yet will you be one of those, are you planning to go at a different time of year or will you not be going at all?

    What are your summer holiday plans (if youíve more than one holiday planned, answer for the main one)?

    Why no overall results? (Not specific to this poll)

    In all recent MSE polls, the poll is broken down into relevant categories: for the holiday one, single man, single woman, etc., for other polls equally suitable categories.
    \\
    Then, the results are presented - again, broken down by the categories used.
    \\
    Is there any reason why there's not an overall graph (yes, I know it's really a histogram) that adds up the individual categories? I'm pretty sure there used to be. (So for the holiday one - there'd be one for single men, showing how many taking holdays now, how many later, how many not, and so on; there'd be one for single women, showing the same things; and one overall one, still showing the same breakdown.)

    I don't like this poll.


    The options are:


    I am a woman in a family (ie: Single/Couple with Dependent kids)


    I am woman with living with my partner


    A couple with no kids is also a family, as is a coupe/single with grown up children.

    Holiday Poll flawed!

    Why does the MSE poll only ask about Summer holidays? Many people deliberately go away in Spring or Autumn, when 'kids' are back at school, whilst others go skiing in the Winter. I was completely unable to answer any of the options in this poll, which will probably apply to the majority of forum members.

    Thanks for your feedback. We changed the wording of the poll categories from the previous week's poll that had similar categories due to some single parent families feeling excluded and will take yours into consideration for future polls.

    Still no box for me to tick. We (family of 4) went abroad on holiday for 2 weeks a few months ago and we are having a holiday camping during the 6 weeks holidays too.

    Looking doubtful for any kind of holiday this year but possibly very early next year instead
    (so much for retirement, I am working more hours now than I did before I retired)
