The dataset of the Statistical "Which Character" Personality Quiz includes characters from the fictional universe of ER.


The dataset has 6 characters from this universe. They are ordered in the list below by their notability (see Note 1).

Notability Name
90.2John Carter
83.0Abby Lockhart
80.8Kerry Weaver
67.1Luka Kovac
64.7Chuny Marquez
50.7Malik McGrath

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 ER?". The distribution of their responses are below.

# Response Count
1 It's the worst 3
2 It's bad 7
3 It's okay 383
4 It's good 1267
5 It's my favorite 253

This gives it an average score of 3.92 / 5. Making it 220th 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.
