PC Tablets Tablet PC Survey 2012/2013- Research paper

??The market for tablet PCs has expanded at an incredible rate over the last few years. The reasons for this are numerous, however low prices and the availability of new technology mean that even children now own and regularly use tablet PCs.
A number of companies are now offering tablet PCs. The marketing manager of a major tablet PC manufacturer wants to get an insight into the attitudes and behaviour of tablet PC users. The primary purpose of the survey was to ascertain what customers take into account when choosing a tablet PC and what determines their satisfaction with the product. In October 2012, a questionnaire was mailed to a random sample of 1,000 tablet PC users drawn from the customer database. To increase the return rate, a small prize draw of Amazon vouchers was used. To avoid sampling bias, a stratified sampling methodology was employed for both age and gender, as defined by the demographic make-up of the UK population. The SPSS data set which is named ?Tablet PC Survey_dataset? is attached
