  1. Airport Security Survey Grace Collins Emily Maxwell Christy English

  2. Since September 11, 2001, airport security measures in the United States have greatly intensified. Some argue that the largest number of Americans have been affected in the post-9/11 world by the nation's airport security changes. These changes include: • required full-body scan • OR required full-body pat down • smaller quantity of carry-on liquids allowed

  3. PROS: • Increased sense of security for many travelers  •  Fewer terrorist attempts •  Full-body scans are much quicker than pat-downs (15-30 seconds) • Employs many people through the TSA

  4. CONS: • Lengthy security procedures if searched extensively • Some travelers often feel they are searched extensively without cause • Many feel violated by full-body scans and pat-downs • Security checkpoints in other countries are not the same, so prevention only works in one direction • Racial profiling • Technology is still not sufficient enough to detect all possible weapons

  5. II. Subgroups

  6. Characteristics: • White • Bachelors degree or higher • Age 30 years or older • Registered voter Subgroup A

  7. Characteristics: • Middle Eastern • Economic status: middle • Age 16 or older • Non registered voter Subgroup B

  8. Characteristics: • Male • White • In college • Age 18 or older Subgroup C

  14. Which would you feel more comfortable with at airport security checkpoints? • possible answers: full-body scan, full-body pat down, I am uncomfortable with both • Subgroup A expected response: full-body scan • Question 5: it ranged between pat down and scan • Subgroup B expected response: I am uncomfortable with both • Question 5: ranged between pat down and scan • Subgroup C expected response: full-body scan • Question 5:scan Question 5

  15. Do you think there is a need to standardize airport security in all countries? • possible answers: Yes, all airport security should be the same internationally, No, each country is better off deciding it's airport security measures, I don't think standardizing airport security would make a difference • Subgroup A expected response: yes, standardize • Question 6:All airport security should be the same • Subgroup B expected response: no difference • Question 6: Airport security should be the same • Subgroup C expected response: no, each country does their own thing • Question 6:I don’t think it would make a difference Question 6

  21. What did we learn? • a lot of discontent with airport security is publicized, but doesn't represent sentiments of the population as a whole •  Many of those who have been on an airplane since 9/11 have not cut-back due to new security measures • The predominant population of America believes that while some of the security measures are invasive, they are worth the added protection against terrorist and other attacks
