The initiator of the project was AØG from OsloMet, Norway; however, each participating country/university had a project lead adhering to local ethical approvals. Participants in the study were the general population in the participating countries. The participants fulfilled both of the inclusion criteria: (1) be of age of 18 or over and (2) speak Norwegian or English. Any respondent who did not meet the above criteria was excluded. The introductory information accompanying the survey explained the purpose and anonymity of the study, and consent was obtained by completing the first page of the survey. The study was thereby quality-assured and approved by OsloMet (20/03676) and the regional committees for medical and health research ethics (REK, 132066) in Norway, reviewed by the University of Michigan Institutional Review Board for Health Sciences and Behavioral Sciences (IRB HSBS) and designated as exempt (HUM00180296) in the USA, by the University of Salford Health Research Ethics (HSR1920-080) in the UK, and the University of Queensland (HSR1920-080; 2020000956) in Australia.
