8 Validity
This sections describes the validity of the data and information used and collected during this research. The document has been evaluated by an occupational and organizational psychologist with a broad experience in management consulting.

Figure 7: The dataset visualized with and without Americans
One of the major uncertainties of the collected data is the fact that the questionnaire is mainly filled out by people living in the United Stated of America. Almost 50% of the people who filled out the questionnaire turned out to be American or currently living in America. This research is interested in a global view and focused on American opinions.
