 Analytic Reports from WCalc6 runs for all series.

Approval

The % of positive ratings in each series. These are the EAD's longest series because they do not require % of negative ratings, which are more difficult to find. Theoretical range 0 - 100.

Relative Approval

The % of positive ratings divided by the sum of the % of positive ratings and the % of negative ratings; the % of neutral answers are excluded. Theoretical range 0 - 100.

Net Approval

The % of positive ratings minus the % of negative ratings; the % of neutral answers are excluded. Theoretical range -100 - 100.
