Graphical representation of responses to Question 16 - analysis provided in text below

The largest clusters here are around terms used in the question itself, such as “government”, “industry”, “bodies” and “users”. Concepts such as “information” and “inform” are connected to those such as “decide”, “decisions”, “consumers” and “provide”, pointing to the important informational role that classification continues to play. The tight clustering around the relatively neutral concepts of “bodies”, “industry”, “government” and “agencies” (see “bodies” – red circle) suggests the absence of a strong polarisation of views around this question. The large number of concepts clustered around “users” (brown circle) suggests that respondents identified a more important role for users of media in any new classification scheme.
