The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) has set up a tracking survey to understand and monitor public attitudes to its main business priorities.
Here you will find headline findings from the fourth wave of the survey, along with the questionnaire and a breakdown of the findings.
The fourth wave of data was collected between 12 December 2012 and 2 January 2013 using face-to-face in-home interviews with a representative sample of 2,107 households in the UK.
Only a subset of the questions asked in wave 1 were asked in waves 2, 3 and 4. In addition, some of the questions asked in wave 2 to establish a new baseline have not been asked in waves 3 and 4 and will only be asked annually in future years.
There are no new questions in wave 4. Please refer to the Excel tables to see the responses to all of the wave 4 questions and differences between waves 1, 2, 3 and 4.
The survey will run 4 times a year, with questions on issues where we think attitudes might shift quickly or be affected by seasonal changes repeated quarterly.
