The Department of Statistics' CensusAtSchool survey reveals: Kids fear ABs will choke in final

22 June 2011

CensusAtSchool, an online educational survey run by the Department of Statistics, reveal that 83% of students in schools across the country think that the All Blacks will make it to the Rugby World Cup final, but only 41% believe that they will actually win it.

Rachel Cunliffe, a graduate of The University of Auckland and now a co-editor of the CensusAtSchool initiative, found that the children's results were "a bit of a surprise".

These results were in contrast to a survey done among their parents, which reveal that the adults were a lot more optimistic about the All Blacks chances in this year's World Cup.
