Today in class we compiled al of the data from the 48 students across data visualisation. We discovered by comparing university study time and travel time to see how much time is wasted by the average university student.

As you can see in the bar graph above, travel time is roughly more than half of the time at 6.6% (public and private transport) and time spent studying equaled to 11.1%. In addition we found out that public transport equaled to 1.3% and private transport equaled to 5.3% showing that private transport is used 5 times more than public transport, therefore better time use while on private transport could equate to more hours studying.

We worked this out by totaling the number of entries of study time and travel time:

step 1 – Public transport: 158 / 11761 (total number of entries by all 48 students) x 100 (to work out percentage) = 1.3%

step 2 – Private transport: 624 / 11761 (total number of entries by all 48 students) x 100 (to work out percentage) = 5.3%

step 3 – We added the public transport and private transport percentage, which = 6.6%

step 4 – Study Time: 1308 / 11761 (total number of entries by all 48 students) x 100 (to work out percentage) = 11.1%
