  • *Only survey respondents with known gender or age cohort were included in the calculation of weighted results.

  • †Cumulative Distribution Function tests for hypergeometric and binomial distributions produce probabilities between 0 and 1. If the value is between 0.005 and 0.995, then the respondent group is representative of the overall population; if not, the group is over-represented or under-represented (statistically significant at the α=0.005 level).
