Degrassi: The Next Generation

The dataset of the Statistical "Which Character" Personality Quiz includes characters from the fictional universe of Degrassi: The Next Generation.


The dataset has 10 characters from this universe. They are ordered in the list below by their notability (see Note 1).

Notability Name
82.3Manny Santos
74.3Archie 'Snake' Simpson
62.8Liberty Van Zandt
61.9Gavin 'Spinner' Mason
58.4Drew Torres
58.0Alli Bhandari
56.2Emma Nelson
53.1Jenna Middleton
51.4Clare Edwards
44.9Connor Deslauriers

To see how each character was rated by users, view their individual page.


As part of the survey where they rated characters, users were also asked the question "How do you rate Degrassi: The Next Generation?". The distribution of their responses are below.

# Response Count
1 It's the worst 13
2 It's bad 43
3 It's okay 946
4 It's good 1990
5 It's my favorite 616

This gives it an average score of 3.87 / 5. Making it 248th out of the 342 universes in the dataset ordered by rating.

The average rating may be hard to generalize though, the users of one online personality quiz could not be representative of the population in general in important ways. And there are some very obvious things you can point to: users of the quiz are biased towards being women and being younger. To kind of explore this idea, we can correlate user ratings with responses to the self-report personality quiz to see what type of people give this universe higher ratings. The table below show the correlation between a users response to a specific self report item and their rating of this universe.
