Disclaimers
Limitations
Data are sample based and therefore subject to sampling variability. Data are based on respondents’ answers to a telephone survey, so data is self-reported and therefore potentially subject to response bias, recall bias, social desirability bias, and so on. Indicator estimates are sometimes based on small samples, resulting in low precision of the estimates.
