Supplementary notes

* The study is made up of two parts; a computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI) in which respondents are asked to give a self-assessment of their payment habits, and a payments diary to be completed by the participants themselves in the seven days following the interview. In total, 2,106 individuals filled out the questionnaire and 2,061 individuals completed the diary in full.

All transactions entered by respondents who completed the payments diary. The chart shows a breakdown of the payment instruments used in each transaction amount category, measured in terms of the total number of transactions. For reasons of clarity, labels for a number of payment instruments (accounting for less than 1%) were omitted. Deviations from 100% due to rounding.
