2. Quantitative summary of responses

2.1 The table below provides a quantitative overview of consultation responses. It indicates where participants gave a clear yes or no response to a specific proposal put forward by the Scottish Government, if a question was not answered, and cases where participants made a general response but did not provide a clear yes/no answer.

2.2 While the table is a useful reference point in terms of the overall number of responses to each question, it is not an exact representation of the views expressed. This is because in some cases a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response was not clear cut. For example, some participants answered ‘yes’ to indicate agreement with an aspect of the consultation document but called for adjustments to proposals in their comments. In chapters three to seven we present both the quantitative and qualitative interpretation of responses to provide a fuller picture of the views expressed.
