Data Explorer - WhatDoTheyKnow survey

This mini-site examines how much the distribution of reports for a reporting category differ from the 'normal' for the WhatDoTheyKnow survey dataset.

Columns in Red and Blue have at least a 95% chance of a real difference from the general dataset and at least a 1% different from the expected value.

As each graph only explores the interaction of two variables analysis may be incomplete or misleading where other variables interact with both. A relationship can be statistically significant without necessarily implying one causes the other.

Red means a category has more reports than expected. Blue means it has less.

The default exploration mode is authority type, but you can also explore by message concern, previous foi use, year, or by analysis type. See explanations for these here.
