DECC set up a tracking survey in early 2012 to understand and monitor public attitudes to the Department’s main business priorities. The survey runs four times a year and consists of one longer, annual survey and three shorter, quarterly surveys which focus on a subset of questions where we think attitudes might shift quickly or be affected by seasonal changes. This summary note presents headline findings from the seventh quarterly wave of the survey.
The seventh wave of data was collected between 25 and 29 September 2013 using face-to-face in-home interviews with a representative sample of 2,103 households in the UK. The wave 7 questionnaire was the same as the previous quarterly questionnaire (wave 6, July 2013), but without the questions on radioactive waste and Geological Disposal Facilities.
