I think both are correct. but is one preferred?

I'm trying to edit a korean writer who labeled a table as "Consciousness for the safety of meat", comparing domestic and imported varieties of different sources of meat and how safe the customers felt about the meats. What do you think of the label "Customer perception of safety of various meats"? Or is "Risk associated with different kinds of meat" better? Thanks for your input.

Here's the table:
5 pt. scale: 1-very uneasy 5-very safe

Table 6. Consciousness for the safety of meat
Domestic Imported
2002 2004 2002 2004
Beef 2.1 2.7 2.0 1.9
Pork 2.6 3.1 2.1 2.2
Chicken 2.7 3.0 2.1 2.1
Fish 3.0 3.2 2.3 2.3

These two sentences are not synonymous.

The first means that the customers have this idea of the relative safety of different meats (but that is just their opinion, it may have no scientific factual basis).

The second would be the actual relative safety of meats.

I have only a slight, slight preference for "partly" with the verb "succeed".

If the meat safety table is truly the result of polling customers, then "Risk ..." is not going to work at all. The customers are hardly likely to have the expertise necessary to arrive at any objective evaluation of the risk. I think the "Customer perception ..." choice is better.

"Customer judgments of meat safety" is another possibility worth considering.
