    you only have to look at home low the response was to see the decks stacked in their favour. They can make these consultations as frequent as they want and if they ask the same question enough times they’ll get their answer.

    totally agree with you on that mate, but it stil stands that my own business facebook page, which is a car and truck page only, had over 37000 viewers and you'd have to assume that almost 100% are car people, or want to be, so should have taken a few mins to act to save the future. Too many in the modified car culture thought that IVA was only for new cars and kit cars and probably thought "**** it, I don't do new or kit", not realisisng that such a high amount of modifieds really should go for BIVA if we're totally honest about it, especially in the Yank pickups market where near everybody wants to lay frame lol. BUT, even if they didn't think it involved them, they should still have taken a few minutes to help the people who would be affected as it's all part of the car scene in one way or another. We all need to stick together where legislation threatens the car hobby as each "interest group" is relatively small, but together we are a force to be heard!

    Well done to those who alerted us to this little bit of sneaky legislation, and indeed well done to all that took the time to reply. Whilst on the one hand there was relatively few replies, virtually all of them were against the change and at least the Government took notice and acted on the replies received. It is an unfortunate truth that whilst many have an opinion so few can actually be bothered to do something. There is a lesson here, again thanks to all.

    Actually you are all right, the low but effective response is dumbfounding considering how much it went viral.
    And how many kin thousands of enthusiasts there are who should at least support issues even if they think it will not effect them.

    2184 voted positively this time. Just checked the VHI Mot Consultation thing and 2081 voted 'positively' on that one.

    Looks like we only have a hard core of 2000 troops keeping our cultural privilege alive.

    Still, better to have a pro active group this size than a much larger group of self interested, back biting, miserable short term fashion gold chainer ****s dragging us down.

    Brilliant result, but maybe the people directly affected is very small, and if the average number responded then it does seem like the numbers needed to sway a decision can be surprisingly small.

    How Big a Sample Do I Need?
    Using the chart below, select your approximate target population, then choose your margin of error to estimate the number of completed surveys you’ll require.

    Now that you have your numbers from Step #1 and Step #2 check out this handy chart below to figure out how big a sample you’ll need…

    Margin of Error Confidence Level
    Population 10% 5% 1% 90% 95% 99%
    100 50 80 99 74 80 88
    500 81 218 476 176 218 286
    1,000 88 278 906 215 278 400
    10,000 96 370 4,900 264 370 623
    100,000 96 383 8,763 270 383 660
    1,000,000+ 97 384 9,513 271 384 664

    Note: These are intended as rough guidelines only. Also, for populations of more than 1 million you might want to round up slightly to the nearest hundred.

    How Responsive Will People Be?
    We’re sorry to say that not everybody you send your survey to will fill it out.

    The percentage of people who do actually fill out a survey that they receive is known as the “response rate”. Estimating your response rate will help you determine the total number of surveys you’ll need to send out to obtain the required number of completed surveys.

    Response rates vary widely depending on a number of factors such as the relationship with your target audience, survey length and complexity, incentives, and topic of your survey. For online surveys in which there is no prior relationship with recipients, a response rate of between 20-30% is considered to be highly successful. A response rate of 10-15% is a more conservative and a safer guess if you haven’t surveyed your population before.

    This part’s easy!

    Just divide the number you got from Step #3 by the number you got from Step #4. That’s your magic number.

    So, for example, if you need 100 women who use shampoo to fill out your survey and you think about 10% of these shampoo-using women that you send the survey to will actually fill it out, then you need to send it to 100/10% women – 1000!


    PS Looks like the chart bit didn't paste properly, so maybe check out the site.
