Approach to Analysis

3.4 The Scottish Government has undertaken a quantitative analysis of response rates to each of the nine questions asked, the results of which are set out below. Responses to questions by respondents were assigned to one of three categories: agree, disagree or no firm view expressed. A qualitative analysis was also undertaken by the Scottish Government, with key themes and specific points outlined in the analysis and key findings section.
