The table below gives all the percentages of respondents who were able to do each of the specified activities with ease and without ease at each of the various benzo stages. The highlighted blue cells show the activity that was easiest at each stage. The highlighted yellow cells show the activity that was most difficult at each stage.
A similar table for the 2007 survey can be found here.
If the numbers in the cells of both the 2007 and 2009 surveys are subtracted, it gives an easier way to see where the similarity and differences lie. The yellow cells indicate where the biggest difference was for each activity and the blue cells indicate where the biggest similarity lies. There was a significant difference in the results for the 12 months off, the 24 months off and the 36 months off survey as well as the end of taper survey. The difference for the 12 months off, the 24 months off and the 36 months off survey is probable explained by the small numbers of respondents in those surveys in 2007.
