Current Trajectory and Speed of Change – Age Cohort

Current Trajectory (X Axis) x Current Speed of Change (Y Axis)

This chart combines responses to two questions to create an interactive scatter plot. This chart presents the results via respondents age cohort. You can hover over the chart to reveal more information on each circle.

The chart is structured as follows:

  • X-Axis is the response to the question “Considering the current trajectory of the community (thinking about changes and where the community has been/is heading), how happy or concerned are you about the OVERALL current trajectory?”. The scale is: -5 = Very concerned; 0 = Neutral; 5 = Very happy
  • Y-Axis is the response to the question “Thinking about the current (or recent) speed of change in Falmouth, OVERALL do you think Falmouth is changing too quickly (where it is overwhelming the community) or too slowly (where Falmouth is getting left behind)?”. The scale is: -5 = We need to slow down; 0 = Neutral; 5 = We need to speed up

Key things to note:

  • Overall, the responses by age cohort, are generally closely clustered.
  • There appears to be a trend of the older age groups being more concerned about trajectory and speed of change, and younger groups wanting faster change. Hovering over the age group bubbles (cohorts) will show data on age range.
