Importance x Preparedness – Average Points

Importance of Issue (X Axis) x Preparedness (Y Axis) x Magnitude of Impact (Size) – Average Points

This chart combines responses to three questions to create an interactive scatter plot. This visualization shows response data as it relates to all 14 factors. This chart presents the average results based on all respondents.

The chart is structured as follows:

  • X-Axis is the response to the question “Please indicate how important you think the following topics are to the future of Hilton Head Island” The scale is 1-Not Important, 10 -Critically Important
  • Y-Axis is the response to the question “How well prepared is Hilton Head Island to adapt to these changes?” The scale is 1-Not at all prepared, 5 -Very well prepared
  • Size of the dot is the response to the question “Please score what you believe will be the overall impact or magnitude of the changes within each of the topic areas” The scale is 1-Very Small, 10 Very Large

Key things to note:

  • The most critical factors are located in the bottom right side of the quadrant, which represent the issues that respondents consider to be critically important and perceive Hilton Head to be unprepared for.
  • The bigger circle factors (high magnitude of impact) are towards the critically important end of the X axis, which shows that respondents believe that factors with a high magnitude of impact are also very important for the future of the island.
