    Re: statistical question

    Hey chels2000.

    Hint: Consider not only what is relevant (think about the context of the questionnaire being asked to pet owners and what is relevant for them to answer), but also questions that are able to be quantified accurately (i.e you can turn an answer into a number quite easily).
