TOTAL 1 = Total of numbers in rows above and equals numbers who are associated with at least one other cause.

TOTAL 2 = Number who ticked that box alone, indicating they were associated only with that cause.

TOTAL 3 = Number who did not tick they were associated with relevant cause, and thus indicates those not associated with it.

TOTAL 4, not shown above = 1,533, the total of each pair of boxes of Totals 2 and 3 and indicates number who ticked at least one box.

Percentage 1 = Total 2 as a percentage of 1,533 and are the percentages shown on Page 58 of the Report.

Percentage 2 = The percentage in red in a yellow box in a particular column of the number who indicated they supported that cause (in Total 2 line) Ė the interesting percentages!

It should be noted that the totals are all strictly only two-way, that is they show the number ticking one particular cause who also ticked another cause. The total will not completely tally because there were some respondents who were associated with 3 or more causes and who will therefore be counted more than once in the above Table. The asterisk (*) by certain numbers indicates that these were statistically significant, that is, would not have arisen by chance. Peter Brierley, Christian Research, 24/5/02
