Supplementary notes

* This statement was phrased by the source as follows: "homoseksuele mannen en lesbiennes moeten vrij zijn om hun leven te leiden zoals zij dat zelf willen" (English: Homosexual males and lesbians should be free to live their lives how they want to). Respondents gave an answer on a spectrum from 1 (=completely agree) to 5 (=completely disagree). The percentages in this statistic are participants completely agreeing or agreeing with the statement (point 1 and 2 on the spectrum). Those who did not know, explicitly refused to answer or whose answers were missing have been coded as absent values.

The results have been weighted to represent the entire population.
