reflects the demographic profile of the adult population according to the most recent census

Where results do not sum to 100 or the ‘difference’ appears to be +/-1 more/less than the
actual, this may be due to rounding, multiple responses or the exclusion of don't knows or
not stated responses. The precision of Ipsos online polls are calculated using a credibility
interval with a poll of 1,000 accurate to +/- 3.5 percentage points. For more information on
the Ipsos use of credibility intervals, please visit the Ipsos website (www.Ipsos.com).
