Details

The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) has set up a tracking survey to understand and monitor public attitudes to its main business priorities.

The first wave of data was collected between 21 and 25 March 2012 using face-to-face in-home interviews with a representative sample of 2,121 households in the UK. The value of a tracking survey is in looking at how the attitudes change over time so the full value of the findings will only be apparent when we have a number of waves of data.

Here you will find headline findings from the first wave of the survey, along with the questionnaire and a breakdown of the findings.

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.

See information and data relating to all waves of the survey.
