Smoking ban poll

The city of Denton polled users of its new website, Engage Denton, on a proposed smoking ban in the city back in January, February and March. A wide majority of the site’s users (60 percent to nearly 80 percent, depending on how the data is grouped) favored such a ban.

The company that powers the website, Mind Mixer, took the data and created some graphics for the city. The council’s new committee on citizen engagement looked at the charts yesterday, the task force studying the measure saw the tables last week.

The attached document shows the poll results in charts by age, gender and area of the city in which the respondents live.
