Next to each statistic we display all information regarding the origin of the data. We distinguish between the source, the publisher and the conductor of the survey.
It is, for instance, possible that a company commissioned a market research institute to collect data, whose findings were published in a specialist journal. However, it is not unusual for them to be identical. In this case we have obtained the data directly from the original source, which itself collected the data.
