Show in public statistics (public_statistics)
This attribute allows the survey administrator to chose if a particular question results should be displayed to the survey participants after they submitted the survey.
The default setting for each question is 'Off' (=Do not show the question statistics to the respondents). You have to enable this for every single question if you want to show the survey statistics of that (those) particular question(s) to the survey participants after the survey submission.
