Information from the source: In this statistic, no party identification (‘None’) only includes those who explicitly deny that they identify with a party. It excludes those saying “don’t know”, or giving some other answer other than naming a party.
The proportions of respondents answering "Don't know" or not giving an answer are not shown. This, together with the effects of rounding and weighting, means that percentages will not always add to 100 per cent.
