Annex A: Sample sizes

The Ipsos MORI sample is broadly representative of the adult population aged 16-74. Data is weighted to reflect the age and gender profile of the Scottish population aged 16-74. Waves 10 and 11 were run as boosts on the Ipsos MORI Global Advisor survey. The sample size for these waves also includes respondents living in Scotland from the UK sample of that survey. From Wave 12 onwards, a separate survey of 500 people in Scotland was run by Ipsos MORI Scotland, though a number of questions continue to mirror questions asked globally.

YouGov results are based on a sample of c.1,000 adults 18+ across Scotland at each wave. YouGov apply weighting to the data to match the population profile to adjust for any over/under representations and to maximise consistency from wave to wave. Parameters used include age, gender, social class, region and level of education.
