Class Survey Report   <== click here    by Jere Johnston

1) The Survey.  Classmate Jere Johnston has distributed a class survey before the last three reunions and presented the findings in the Class Book and in a short movie at the reunion itself.   247 classmates completed this year's survey, down from 467 for the 50th reunion survey.  The tabulations for each question in this year’s survey can be found in the PDF file below.  The tabulations for the previous surveys appear in the Class Book for that reunion. 

All of these surveys provide interesting sketches of the beliefs, behaviors, accomplishments and aspirations of some of our classmates.  But the respondents do not necessarily represent our class, so take the findings as interesting and useful, but not a scientifically accurate profile of our class. 

2) The Movie.  This year’s movie (“Y63Survey-55thReunionPreso”) focuses on the most recent survey, but it includes findings from the survey of our class for the 50th reunion. It is 15 minutes long.  There is no audio, so watch it in a quiet setting so you can let the numbers and quotations wash over you.  Our classmates are some of the most interesting males of our age cohort.  Be inspired by some of their answers. 

You should be able to click or double click on the file name and it will play right in your Web browser.  You can also download the movie to your computer and play it there.  Questions?  Email Jere at  jerej@umich.edu
