In this section, data collected from the survey throughquestionnaire administration were organized, analysed andinterpreted in accordance with the methods and proceduresoutlined above. Results were discussed andrecommendations were drawn. However, the study isheavenly primary data, except in the introductory andliterature review aspect of the research work. However, atotal of 250 questionnaires were administered out of which202 were successfully retrieved. Responses from therespondents were recorded pertaining to bio-data (age group,gender, academic discipline, year of study, etc),environmental awareness test, attitudes and level ofcommitment to environmental protection. These responseswere later scored, and from which the level of awarenessand participation were determined. The values obtained werelater inputted in SPSS statistical software and theappropriate statistical analysis was later conducted. Theresults obtained are discussed and vividly explained as canbe seen in the preceding paragraphs/pages.In the table below (table 1), the age structure of therespondents are shown. The age groups were drawn into 4-year class intervals of 16-20, 21-25,26-30 and 30-above inorder to ensure adequate representation. The age group ofthe respondents within the interval of 16-20 recorded 61students making 30.5 valid percent of the total respondents.The highest count of the respondents age groups fall in thecategory of 21-25, recording a number of 124 students withthe valid percent of 62.0%. This implies that the agestructure of the respondents is concentrated at this age grouprevealing youthful age of the students with a totalcumulative percent at 92.5% collectively.Table 1: Age Groups of the Respondents, 2014Age Group Frequency Percent ValidPercentCumulativePercent16-20 61 30.2 30.5 30.521-25 124 61.4 62 92.526-30 13 6.4 6.5 9930-above 2 1 1 100Total 200 99 100Missing System 2 1Total 202 100(Source: Fieldwork, 2014)The age group within 26-30 recorded 13 respondents onlywith the valid percent of 6.5%. This shows low number ofstudents falling into that age group. The least count fallbetween 30-above age groups with 0nly 2 respondentsamounting to 1.0 %. Two of the total respondents did notrespond to the question and hence their age group could notbe determined.
