What does this mean? When there is perfect dispersion, IQV = 1.00 When there is no dispersion, IQV = 0.00

Use the following rule of thumb: 0.00 to 0.24 " No dispersion " 0.25 to 0.49 " Weak dispersion " 0.50 to 0.74 " Moderate dispersion " 0.75 to 1.00 " Strong dispersion " IQV = 0.610 ". . . represents moderate dispersion among respondents in their expressed religious preference."
