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.
Next to every statistic you can find this box including this information:
: Under Source, you can directly view the source of the data and who conducted the survey. It is, for instance, possible that a company commissioned a market research institute to collect the data. We differentiate these two dimensions in order to ensure maximum transparency.
: Here we provide information about where the data was published. In case of online publications we include the corresponding link in order to provide you with as transparent information as possible.
: Under Further info you can find, amongst other things, information about the region and the survey time period.
Below the box you can, moreover, find additional information about the statistic, which helps you interpret the data. Should you still have questions, you can use our Research Service in order to forward your questions directly to our research department.
