Ainsworth's Strange Situation Findings

So in ainsworth study, tutor2u and simply psychology states that 70 % of infants have secure attachment whilst insecure resistant & avoidant attachment types are both at 15%. The text book says that secure attachment = 60-75%, insecure avoidant = 20-25% and insecure resistant = 3%. I was wondering which figure I should use cos i really just don't know

Better to use the textbook. Find a past paper question on the strange situation and look at the mark scheme to see what figures they state
