Using the questionnaire, I will obtain independent and dependant data.


Univariate analysis technique can be applied to the questions 1, 2,3,4,6, 15, 17, 19.v from these question following variables have been outlined:

-         attitude towards integration into EU

-         attitude towards adopting European Values

-         Social Problems in Georgia, ranked by importance

-         Problem of Homosexuality

-         Homosexual acquaintances

-         Judgment of population towards homosexuals

-         Homosexuality prevention projects

Analyzing these questions would best be done independently, as they, by their concept do not depend on other questions. Analyzing these questions independently would give me some very useful data:

Question # 1,2.  This is an opening question that attempts to open up the respondents for future questions. First two questions are both introductory and general, but at the same time, second one is more concrete and down to point that the first one. The second question focuses on European values opposed to the traditional Georgian values. This question will give us the insight how prepared Georgian Society is for the integration into Europe.


Question 3 will measure the identification of homosexuality as a social problem. If people write the problem in the first five ones without any reminder, then the problem standing is really important for the society.


Question 4 aims to assess if homosexuality is the problem at all. If third question aims to assess the importance of the problem, this question assesses reminder awareness of the problem.


Question 6 is a beginning of gathering information about the attitude towards homosexuals. We understand that the gathered data will be second-hand (as people are talking about other people) but analyzing the problem, we came to the conclusion that asking homosexuals directly, will be more complex (difficult sampling) and the bias will be higher as people are more inclined to talk about other people more openly than about themselves.


Question 15 aims to find the data that will be used for a more thorough research on homosexuals.  


Question 17 will give the information about the attitude of the respondent towards the homosexuals.


Question 19 also seeks to find the attitude of respondent towards the problem of homosexuality, but in a more neutral way.


Bivariate and multivariate techniques will be used for questions:


#1,#2 will be analyzed together, to see if the willing/unwilling to enter the EU is correlated with the understanding of the difference in the values, and the necessity to adopt some values.  


Results of question 3 will be compared to the question 4 , in order to analyze the importance of the homosexuality problem. If the positive answer to the 4th question is much higher than the number of times people stated homosexuality as a problem is question three, then the conclusion will be that even though in eyes of society, homosexuality is the problem to be dealt with, but it is not as burning as other social problems.


Questions 5 is dependant on question 4 and its purpose is to give more clear, qualitative data about the insight of the respondent.


Questions 6 and 7 and 8 will also be analyzed by multivariate analysis which aims to find the perception of the respondent of the way society view the homosexual minorities. And if the respondent feels threat that he/she will be labeled into the same group.


Questions 9 and 11 through a bivariate analysis will give us valuable information about the % of protest towards the aggression. The analysis of questions 10 and 12 (dependants of questions 10 and 12) will give us information what effect each aggressive activity.


I would also analyze the data according to question 17 sex and age. This will give me the information about the attitude towards homosexuality in women and men in different age groups. There is the hypothesis that the different age groups will have different attitudes. So will the men and women. The hypothesis is that women are more mild in their judgment towards homosexuals then men. Also, the judgment becomes stricter with the increase in age.
