Surveys and Statistics Quiz

Today at the office I am working on a survey of our franchises and compiling the data into something meaningful. It should be about 40 pages of analysis. For inspiration, I am seeking other reports that describe the responses of large surveys (please let me know if you can recommend any good ones). I am particularly interested in the format that information is presented. In the midst of this, I present.
