Let me explain.  23.6% of the people in the Metro counties come from
Clackamas Co., but 11.7% of all opt-in participants come from Clackamas Co.
 43.8% of the people in the Metro counties come from Multnomah Co., but
62.5% of all opt-in participants come from Multnomah Co., etc.  Think of it
as a way of expressing the relative participation of the various groups.

The last survey, which is the one I intended to link to, asked what subject
should Metro be studying?  I put in last mile fiber.

Please ignore Rich's snide remark.
