Appendix B Data Validation

This appendix provides details about the data validation process – i.e. the process of determining the total number of consultation responses.

Number of responses received

1,443 responses were received to the consultation. 40 responses were received through the Scottish Government’s consultation portal, with a further 20 responses having been emailed to the Bank’s dedicated mailbox. The remaining responses received were part of a campaign from Friends of the Earth Scotland. However, it should be noted that of these 1383 responses, 1360 used a standard template and are identical. The remaining 23 varied significantly from the standard template, and therefore were considered as individual responses for analysis.

Validation of responses

The analysis takes into account all the statements submitted through the online Consultation Hub in relation to each of the consultation questions, and the number of campaign responses received have been reported on a question-by-question basis. For each question, a number of responses were removed for a variety of reasons:

  • Were found to be entirely blank.
  • Were identified as being irrelevant to the question.
  • Were found to have inappropriate use of language.
