Response Rates: 
34%
Weighting: 
The results in this year’s country survey were compared to those in the country survey conducted in FY ’15 (response rate was 29%, N=231). The data were weighted to reach similar stakeholder compositions across both survey years, allowing for more statistically reliable comparisons. Note, stakeholders who identified themselves as “Other” in the stakeholder category options were not included in these comparisons. 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 ’15 COS report and the non-weighted data presented in this report. For the weighted stakeholder breakdown and year comparison results, please refer to Appendix E (Report, page 102) in the Related Materials.
Questionnaires: 
The questionnaire is in English and Arabic. The English version is provided as related material.
