Note - A data-normalisation technique called ‘weighting’ has been applied to help the survey sample better represent the population of interest. Weighting improves the quality of the survey sample by creating an adjustment factor for each participant. Download the ‘about the survey’ supplement to understand the weighting used for this project.
