# Margin of Error

Margin of Error indicates the maximum sampling error in the results of a survey at a confidence interval of 95% (as per the industry standard). The larger the sample size, the lower the Margin of Error and the closer the findings are to the results from a survey of the entire population.

For example, if the figure you are reading is 50% and the Margin of Error for your chart is 3%, then the result you would see if you were to sample the entire population has a 95% likelihood to fall between 47% and 53%.

The Margin of Error displayed is the highest level associated with the sample size.
