  1. Each row corresponds to either a segmentation property or a requirement and each column corresponds to one of the metrics in Table 1. A checked cell (\(\checkmark \)) denotes that the metric is recommended for the corresponding property/requirement, a crossed cell (X) denotes that the metric is not recommended, and empty cells denote neutrality
