The 20th wave of PAT data was collected between 14 and 18 December 2016 using face-to-face in-home interviews with a representative sample of 2,134 households in the UK. Full details of the methodology are provided in the PAT survey technical note.
On 14 July 2016, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) merged with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), to form the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). As such, the survey has now been rebranded as BEIS’s Energy and Climate Change Public Attitudes Tracker (PAT).
BEIS is committed to continuous improvement of our statistics. We are keen to understand more about the people and organisations that use our statistics, as well as the uses of our data. We therefore welcome user input on our statistics.
