Scottish Parents' Survey 2021 - children's rights: results
Findings on children’s rights from Scottish Parents’ omnibus survey children and families analysis 2021.
3. Sources of awareness
Parents who were aware of the UNCRC were asked an open question on where they had heard about it. As Figure 3.1 shows, these parents were most likely to have heard about the UNCRC through their work (28%), their children’s school, nursery, playgroups, or clubs (21%), or courses, training, or studies (18%). Nearly one in six parents (15%) said they had heard about the UNCRC through the traditional media and 11% through online sources or social media. 9% had heard about it directly from their child or children.
Unweighted Base: 539
Women were more likely than men to say that they heard about the UNCRC at work (33% compared with 17%) or through a course, training, study or college (22% compared with 6%), potentially reflecting gender differences in sectors of employment or study. Men were more likely than women to have heard about the UNCRC through the media (28% compared with 9%) or online or social media sources (18% compared with 8%). Parents with qualifications at degree level or above were also more likely to have heard about the UNCRC through work, compared with those who had other qualifications (37% compared with 19%).
