    Can you please answer these questions to help me with a class presentation? This survey is about vegas and what you do there and why you go there.

    1) Why Vegas? Where else would you go instead?
    It's so different from where I live.

    2) What do you go to Vegas for?
    Gambling, shows, weather, scenery (I like the desert bordered by the mountains--so different from Iowa)

    3) What is your Age, gender, etc.
    53-female

    4) How much do you spend? And on what?
    Usually take $1000 for whatever we do.

    5) How do you figure out which hotel you will stay at?
    Whereever we get free rooms (usually Paris)

    6) Do you fly or drive?
    Fly--for almost 3 hours

    7) Do you bring kids along? If you had kids would they go along with you? Family/couple/single vacation?
    No, thought about bringing the grandkids when they get older but really not a good place for children. Usually with just my husband but I've made a couple of solo trips.

    8) Old Vegas/new Vegas?
    CET cardholder so stay on the strip. Venture downtown maybe every 4 or 5 trips.

    9) Restaurants or buffets?
    Either, whatever we're in the mood for.

    10) Where are you traveling from?
    Iowa

    11) How often do you go to local casinos?
    2 times a month

    12) How much do you spend (shopping, dining, gambling, clubs, spas, hotel)
    Don't shop, food is comped, room is comped. Don't do clubs or spas. Just gamble, sightsee and go to shows. Usually $1000 total per trip.

    Ballerholic unless you are planning to fail this project this is an awful way to go about collecting any useful data. There is absolutely no way whatever you get here will be robust enough or satisfy any basic survey sampling criteria to aggregate into useful conclusions.

    Go to the LVCVA site and they have a lengthy visitor profile study as well as other reports on Vegas visitors. They put it together for the public so I'm sure if you contact them they can even send you the raw data or better yet ask for their source crosstabs which they will surely have. From the crosstabs you can generate whatever data you want to present and it will be credible.

    This is a crazy, loaded question. A player does not "spend" like people taking surveys. Might win or lose 5 figures in one night at the tables, expected "spending" is zero, maybe $500 in tips on a weekend
