Data sources

The sources are the Ipsos MORI Global Advisor dataset and a YouGov weekly surveys of respondents in Scotland. In the former, data are collected online by Ipsos MORI as part of a multi-country survey on the Global Advisor platform. Scottish Government commissioned a Scotland boost to the UK sample in this study. The YouGov weekly survey was a bespoke commission by Scottish Government. Further information about these sources can be found in Annex A.

Scottish Government receives weekly outputs from these sources, and this report contains results for the six week period from the week commencing 16 March to the week ending 24 April 2020, inclusive. Due to the evolving situation and responses to Coronavirus, some questions were not asked at all waves. The dates included in the charts denote the fieldwork dates from the wave of the survey that the data point relates to.
