  1. 1total number of respondents referring to the determinant as either impeding or facilitating. The total n is not always the sum of the numbers in the first and second column since (1) a determinant can be mentioned as both enhancing and impeding by the same person, (2) categories mentioned less than 10 times are not displayed in the first and second column
