Supplementary notes

* The question was phrased by the source as follows: "Personnellement, avez-vous déjà participé à une ou des ventes aux enchères (que soit en salle, sur internet, par téléphone)? Une vente aux enchères est une vente ouverte au public lors de laquelle le bien vendu est adjugé au plus offrant."

Percentage points exceeding 100 percent are probably due to rounding.
