This briefing looks at some key findings of the Scottish Household Survey 2021. This is a general population survey carried out since 1999. It provides figures on public attitudes on a range of topics. The briefing focuses on what the survey tells us about people’s attitudes to their public services.
The survey is carried out by Ipsos MORI for the Scottish Government. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 and 2021 surveys saw face to face interviews replaced by a telephone survey, with experimental statistics from these not directly comparable to earlier years. The 2022 survey was face to face again.
