The Survey

The Thresher conducted a survey of a randomly selected sample of 400 Rice undergraduates via e-mail. A list of all undergraduate e-mail addresses was obtained, then each was assigned a random number. These were then put in numerical order, and the first 400 were sent e-mails, blind carbon copied from the Thresher's e-mail account.

The survey was conducted from midnight Oct. 19 to noon Tuesday. Two follow up e-mails urging students to reply to the survey were sent, one in the early afternoon of Oct. 20 and Monday morning.

Of the responses we received, 13 students are not attending Rice this semester, so they were removed from the sample, leaving us with a sample of 387, and 254 responses from students at Rice this semester. Our response rate was 66 percent.
Question 4: On how many days in the past two weeks did you listen to KTRU for at least 5 consecutive minutes? (Excluding people who had not listened to radio at all this semester.)
Question 5: For each of the types of programming below, would you listen to it if it aired on KTRU?
a. The type of music KTRU currently plays
b. Rice athletic events
c. Rice-sponsored public lectures
d. Concerts from Rice's Shepherd School of Music
e. Campus news/events
f. News/events from outside campus
