Data sources

Data sources

The source is an online polling survey by YouGov. It is a bespoke commission by Scottish Government. Further information about this source can be found in Annex A.

This report contains results from 3 November to 30 December, inclusive. The period covered was before the stay at home restrictions came into effect on 5 January. Due to the evolving situation and government responses to Coronavirus, questions were introduced at different times, or not asked at all waves. Fieldwork dates that the data relates to are provided, and these dates should be kept in mind when interpreting the data.

In the period covered by this report, the Pfizer and BioNTech, Moderna and Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines were approved for use by the UK's medicines regulator. New variants of Coronavirus were also identified during this period. Alongside relevant fieldwork dates and other caveats, these events (see Annex B) also should be kept in mind when interpreting the data.
