When looking at these two dimensions, it is evident that in many cases the topics that were raised by many speakers on average also received a lot of attention when they were mentioned. Topics such as migration, the MFF and defence scored highly, while others, such as development policy and transport, scored lower in both respects. For other topics however, such as social policy, there is a difference between frequency and emphasis. While six speakers did not mention social policy at all, the other speakers put the second most emphasis on this topic, behind only migration. An opposite example is the topic of climate, which was the second most frequently raised topic behind migration, but received less emphasis than eight other topics when mentioned.
