We recently conducted a survey in November 2008 through our visitors to get their feedback on their favorite Urdu Columnists. The Results of the survey has been compiled and summarized below.

Javed Chaudhry topped the survey through accumulative ratings, followed by Haroon Rasheed with almost similar ratings. Haroon Rasheed scored best on the First Choice of visitors, followed by other columnists.

The survey was limited to first 500 samples and every user was asked to rate his 5 most favorite columnists. 21 votes were declared null due to repetitive votes from same person. The ratings were calculated by using weights for each position of the choice in descending order. The weight for Top Choice was 5, Second Choice was 4 and so on.

We could not calculate the ratings of the News Papers/Organizations these columnists are associated with, as we did not have full data of the organizations.

We used an independent third party engine from Survey Gizmo to conduct this survey, and it is available to 3rd party for auditing purpose.
