Combined kappa for availabilitya = 0.0980* (Slight agreement); p-value < 0.001; 95% CI = [0.085, 0.111]
Combined kappa for importanceb = 0.2386* (Fair agreement); p-value < 0.001; 95% CI = [0.208, 0.253]).
  1. *All of the combined coefficients were statistically significant with the p-values < 0.001; Kappa and agreement: < 0 = Less than chance agreement, 0.01–0.20 = Slight agreement, 0.21–0.40 = Fair agreement, 0.41–0.60 = Moderate agreement, 0.61–0.80 = Substantial agreement, 0.81–0.99 = Almost perfect agreement.
