Version Description: 
v01, edited anonymous dataset for public distribution Coding schemes of output data: - Single-choice questions: Response options are coded according to corresponding numbers in the questionnaire. - Multiple-choice questions: When a response option is checked, it is coded as "1," when a response option is not checked, it is coded as "0." - 10-point scale questions: "1" corresponds to the lowest value, "10" corresponds to the highest value. "Don't know" is coded as "11." - Yes/No questions: "Yes" is coded as "1," "No" is coded as "2."
Weighting: 
The results in this year’s Country Survey were compared to those in the Country Survey conducted in FY’16 (response rate was 32%, N=201). Data were weighted to reach the same stakeholder composition in both years, which allows for year comparisons. Stakeholder groups which were not present in both fiscal years were not included in the comparison. Respondents who belonged to the “other” stakeholder category were not included either. As a result, mean ratings, percentages of respondents, and the total number of respondents in both years are slightly different from those of the original data reported in the FY’16 COS report and the non-weighted data presented in appendices A, B, C, D, and F. For the weighted stakeholder breakdown and year comparison results, please refer to Appendix E (Report, page 72) in the Related Materials.
