Results are based on an online study of readers that are located in the qathet region. The margin of error - which measures sample variability - is +/- 4.6%, 19 times out of 20.

The Peak uses a variety of techniques to capture data, detect and prevent fraudulent votes, detect and prevent robots, and filter out non-local and duplicate votes.
