Introduction

This report draws together findings on key indicators from polling work on public attitudes to the Coronavirus pandemic in Scotland. Three reports covering earlier survey work were published on 8 May, 12 June and 5 August 2020. Earlier reports focused on surveys undertaken in the previous few weeks. However, unlike previous reports this report also includes results from earlier surveys, where data is available, to provide a fuller picture of trends in attitudes and behaviours over time. This includes data from surveys which took place from the beginning of lockdown restrictions in March 2020 until the end of August.

Results should be interpreted on the basis of surveys that were designed and undertaken during a rapidly changing situation and bearing in mind the limitations of the data sources that are noted below.
