Each check mark represents agreement on an application. Four applications were coded by both coders, therefore four check marks in a row represents full agreement on whether or not that public benefit has been referenced in the applications. Dashes indicate that there was not agreement, therefore one coder identified a public benefit but the other coder did not.

Quantitative Analysis: Stage Two

Are there patterns in how often public benefits are referred to comparing types of applicant?
