BEIS Public Attitudes Tracker

This series brings together all documents relating to the Public Attitudes Tracker (PAT).

This survey collects data on public attitudes towards the department’s policy areas and runs 4 times a year.

Data is collected through face-to-face in-home interviews with approximately 4,000 households in the UK.

Questions on issues where we think attitudes might shift quickly or be affected by seasonal changes are repeated quarterly; other questions are asked annually.

For further information please contact BEISPAT@beis.gov.uk.
