"Respondents were asked to rate their level of trust on 55 well-known Philippines people." - I thought it was 80? "The list was presented in random order over five screens, and ratings were given as a score out of 10 where 1 equated to “Don’t trust at all” and 10 being “Trust completely”. " A 'Don’t know person' option was given for people who were not familiar with a particular person." - It shows how popular the person if this is represented by DK%. So, it's not only about trust. Now that Filipinos are sensitive due to the coming Election and yet you decided to conduct a survey like this. It's unfair to those candidates who were not included, and at the same time, how did you arrive with the list? Like what Mr servando mabini asked below, why was there high profile people left out?

I don't know if if the percentage of respondents who answered “Don’t know person”, option given for people who were not familiar with a particular person is represented by DK% column heading. But if that is the case and we willl compare for e.g. Jessica Sojo got a Mean/Average of 7.51 and DK% 2 Howie Severino got a Mean/Average of 7.20 and Dk% 24 even though the number of respondents who are unfamiliar with Howie Severino is greater than Jessica Sojo, the trustworthiness of both are almost the same. It shows that when the average was computed, they didn't include those who are unfamiliar with the name on the list.When interpreted, the more you know the person, the higher or lower you rate him. Thus, the lesser the respondents and the higher the mean rate given should make Howie Severino more trustworthy than Jessica Sojo. Try to re-arrange and see who is more trustworthy.

vital and interesting is the information about how Filipinos trust other high profile politicians in the Philippines. How do other presidential candidates not in your list fared for example. What about senatorial candidates Pia Cayetano, Juan Ponce Enrile, Miriam Defensor Santiago and Ferdinand "Bongbong"marcos? How did they fare? What about House Speaker Prospero Nograles who is now running for City Mayor of Davao City? Was he included in that ssurvgey? If so how did he fare? If not, why was he left out?
