For each survey result (percentage, average, etc.) that INTA is
presenting and purporting to be statistically valid (which I and Kurt
have already questioned the validity of), I request that INTA also
publish the error margins and confidence level attached to each and
every figure (e.g. +/- X, 19 times out of 20, or whatever), and also
how they derived that confidence level.

The standard calculations require that the sample be random, too,
which was not the case in this study (as previously discussed). So
please also point out any adjustments to, if any, that were made to
the standard calculations that back up the figures.

The above obviously can't be answered during the call by Lori, but can
be done sometime after the call.
