This statistic is the result of an analysis of different characteristics of the survey. The question was not posed directly. The survey question allowed for multiple answers. Due to this, percentage points may exceed 100 percent. The figures shown in this statistic display only that share of respondents that stated to like the specific music genre "very much".
