Survey Results Part 2

An analysis of individual responses revealed some interesting patterns. There was a strong grouping of responses around what came to be called the "Peace and Privacy" group of descriptors. A second, only slightly less strong, grouping arose around the "Woods and Wildlife" descriptors. There was also a noticeable but much weaker grouping around the "Village and Community" descriptors. Answers to subsequent questions differed based on which group of factors individual respondents considered more important. However, although many individuals favored one group of descriptors over another, there was a wide consensus that the fourteen descriptors were all important in defining Hanover's rural character.
