The results were created in the calculated form byundertaking the frequencies with which the whole groups and not individuals gave particularfeedback. The diagrammatic representation used in this research study should therefore beconsidered as a secondary solution: a highlight of the frequency with which specific solutions arefacilitated. These shares were represented in the form of percentages of the total available groupsin this segment. For example around 4/5th segment of the population in Libya were having nohealth services for the maternal section of the population. The analysis of adults as well as thechildren were carried out individual.
