Reliability questions related to each attribute were measured by calculating Cronbach Alpha and McDonald’s Omega. There was no serious problem found regarding reliability of attributes. The Wilcoxon-Signed Rank test was used to infer a significant difference between EV and PV. All attributes except ‘condition on Safety and security’ showed significant difference between PV and EV, of which 3 attributes PV score outweigh EV.
