Understanding the Data

Data reliability is a measure of the ability to reproduce the results again and again as required. Despite the large number of survey responses (6,400), data reliability decreases when it is examined at a regional or industry level.

The following categories of reliability were used to help readers interpret the accuracy of the data:

A. High Reliability

B. Good Reliability

C. Lower Reliability

D. Lowest Reliability
