2006 Survey

2006 LibQual+TM Survey Results

Respondents to the Survey
To get our LibQual+™ results, an email inviting participation was sent to a representative sample of 1400 randomly selected faculty, undergraduate and graduate students. Our response rate was 24% (338 responses): 231 undergraduates, 47 graduates and 48 faculty. Of the 338 responses, data is summarized for 326. Responses with more than 11 NA or inconsistent responses are thrown out of the analysis by LibQual+™

Respondents by major
Responses were highest for the following majors:

Number of Responses
Percent of Total 338 Responses

Nursing/OT/PT 53 16.31%
Biology/Chemistry/Environ Science 51 15.69%
Education 34 10.46%
School of Management 50 15.58%

Interestingly, in some disciplines, the number of responses exceeded the number in the random sample indicating either blurred lines among disciplines or some other reason for selection. It would seem that perhaps undeclared majors chose a discipline but "undecided" was one of the category that had more responses than were in the randomly selected sample.

Most respondents (209 of 326) were in the 18-22 age bracket. More women than men chose to respond.
