Two years of data were combined to minimize the unreliability of measurement due to the small number of actual events. The reported values are averages across two years.  For example, we report the average value across the years 2020 and 2021.

The percentages reported above have been produced by weighting the survey results so that estimates better represent the Alaska population.
