Four 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 four years.  For example, we report the average value across the years 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.

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