Each answer option has received a weight in order to be able to calculate the average answers. The options in questions with five alternatives have received weights 100, 75, 50, 25 and 0; questions with four alternatives: 100, 200/3, 100/3 and 0; and questions with two alternatives: 100 and 0. The average answer is the one that is closest to the average of all answer numbers. Empty answers have been counted as no opinion. From multiple answers, we choose the right-most option (usually the worst one mentioned).
