Data sources

The sources are two weekly polling surveys, one by Ipsos MORI and one by YouGov, of respondents in Scotland. Data from Ipsos MORI was initially collected as part of a multi-country survey on the Global Advisor platform, with the Scottish Government commissioning a Scotland-boost to the UK sample in this study. From May onwards, Ipsos MORI has continued to conduct weekly polling for the Scottish Government via a separate online survey. The YouGov weekly survey also runs online and is 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 from 29 May to 15 July 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. Fieldwork dates should be kept in mind when interpreting the data. A timeline showing dates when announcements about easing restrictions were made can be found in Annex B.

Throughout this report, the data source used is clearly denoted.
