How to read the results?

The percentages given on the results page at biodiversity.wwviews.org are calculated in the following way: Where more than one meeting has taken place in a country, equal weight is given to the results from each meeting, regardless of the number of participants when calculating the country percentages. The same
principle applies to group categories, such as regions, developed/developing countries and the world total.

The votes from each country are given equal weight when calculating the average percentages. At the online result page, comparisons are available between different WWViews meetings, countries, regions and other groupings. The total number of votes is listed for each answering option, and also available here, is a break out of young and adult votes. In total, there were 839 participants between 16 and 24 years of age and 2,165 participants aged 25 or older.
