    It's totally flawed with a sample size of just 11,000 people from a population of 3,200,000. You have a sample size of about 0.4% of the population.

    I really can't be bothered to find the numerous posts you've made where you try and claim the lack of activity on the Welsh Comb board can be used to accurately represent the use of the Welsh language in Wales as a whole.

    You're trying to compare an opinion with something which is statistically meaningless.

    You simply must learn to accept that some have a different point of view to yours.

    Must be one of those shared illusion things. I could’ve sworn I just saw Dai suggest that other people may have different opinions.

    Bizarre

    "This is the link to the full THIRTY EIGHT page report "

    Well TH you seem impressed by the fact that the report contains thirty eight pages, rather than its content or even its lack of contents.

    I read the report when the headline numbers were first proclaimed by the Colonel. I read it very thoroughly. I examined every claim. I looked in vain for the substance that is required to justify the headlines, but found that it had been omitted. People leave information out of a report for a reason, so my concern was that the very raw base data on which the report is supposedly based. lacks the most crucial ingredient i.e. the data.

    Without access to the data it's impossible to substantiate any of the claims that have been made in the report. With the data, properly broken down by age, age groupings, geographical location, gender, ethnicity, etc, etc, it is possible to verify the claims that have been made. The difference in different parts of Wales tells us nothing at all, unless the data confirms that precisely the same number of the individual groupings were asked the same questions in each of the locations mentioned in the report. For example if eighty, white males, between the age of 30 to 50 were interviewed in one location, then the exact same number would need to be interviewed in all subsequent locations and so on and so on.

    As chat up lines go, it does have some legs. I grant you that. However I will not be availing myself of your very generous offer, as you are the wrong gender.
    But nevertheless, be assured that I am grateful for the offer all the same.

    If I was putting out out for someone on here then you'd be well down the list.

    Just below Dave to be precise.

    Well, having commissioned a number of such projects and reports, I am not particularly surprised that the summary report ran to 38 pages, I merely wanted to draw your attention to the size of it to counter your initial claim that it was “skimpy”.

    I am however delighted to learn that you have spent so much time reading a 38 page report about something you do not have any interest in. Personally I don’t have the luxury of such free time, but I am pleased that you do.

    It is interesting to note that you can find no evidence to prove the claims, presumably no evidence to disprove it either.

    I don’t know the confidence level or margin of error parameters that were employed, but I would hope that a professional polling organisation would ensure that the sample would be sufficiently random as to represent the country as a whole.

    End of the day, the report findings appear to fairly accurately reflect the results of the last census so I’m prepared to accept the results at face value. Unless of course people were lying on their census responses.

    I am sorry that the poll that the colonel posted appears to conflict with your own views and prejudices, but as someone said earlier, sometimes we have to accept that some have a different point of view to yours.
