  1. Within each cell, “n” represents the number of universities that implemented the mitigation indicated by the column heading. The “(%)” represents the percentage that implemented the mitigation relative to the total number of universities in that explanatory variable category. Percentages reflect missing data which causes variation in percentages across columns
