Supplementary notes

In the survey, the question was phrased as follows: "Fake news is news or reports that have been proven to be 'obviously wrong'. We do not mean satire. Have you noticed so-called fake news in more traditional or social media in the past twelve months?" (Original in German:"Fake News sind Nachrichten oder Berichte, die sich als 'offensichtlich falsch' herausgestellt haben. Wir meinen keine Satire-Meldungen.Sind Ihnen in den vergangenen zwölf Monaten in den klassischen oder in den sozialen Medien so genannte Fake News aufgefallen?.")

The source does not provide any information on the type of survey or the precise time period in which the survey took place.
