Analysis

There were eight questions in the consultation document, which related to proposals for the eligibility, delivery, and impact of expanding the victim statement scheme.

All questions which asked for a “yes” or “no” answer have been broken down into the following categories for responses:

  • Yes – the respondent selected “yes” when answering the question
  • No – the respondent selected “no” when answering the question
  • Not answered (NA) – the respondent did not answer the question and made no comments about the proposal
  • Where a respondent did not answer the yes/no question but made comments about the proposal that clearly indicated a view in a particular direction, the answer was coded as appropriate and added to the yes/no responses.

The following analysis follows the structure of the consultation document. For each question it gives the breakdown of multiple-choice answers selected, a summary of the themes from comments given, and an example quotation from the responses.
