The Actuary 2002 readers’ survey

WE ARE PLEASED TO PRESENT the results of the recent readership
survey. As a direct result of your comments, from next
month we will be axing the job adverts and local society
news. Only kidding! however, we will be looking at ways of improving
the various sections of the magazine, using your comments as a guide.
The charts on this page are based on (necessarily) woolly category
descriptions like ‘good’, ‘average’, and ‘sometimes’, so the absolute
values are meaningless. However, the relative scores (and how these
have moved since the last survey) give us something to think about. A
more detailed multi-way analysis of the figures might give us some more
insights into the types of factors affecting people’s enjoyment of the
magazine if anyone wants some GLM practice, feel free to volunteer.
This year’s award for most ambiguous survey result goes to the job
advertisements’ readership figures, with an almost exactly even split
between the five categories provided.
Once again, thank you to everyone who took part in the survey. Of course, if you have any comments on any part of the magazine, you don’t need
to wait until the next survey to tell us about it. Drop me a line at conor.dolan@uk.royalsun.com.
