Survey scripting

The tenant survey was scripted by Craigforth using Survey Monkey software, whilst the landlord survey was scripted by Scottish Government analysts using Questback.

Questions in the tenant survey were not mandatory, and so the base sizes available for analysis differ between questions. Questions on the landlord survey were mandatory, although a 'don't know'/'don't want to answer' or equivalent option was always shown.

Weighting

The tenant survey was weighted to be representative of household type and geographical spread.

The weighting targets used are shown below and are based on the 2016 Scottish Household Survey.

Table A.1

Population (%) Large urban areas Other urban areas Accessible small towns Remote small towns Accessible rural Remote rural Total
Single adult 38% 37% 28% 35% 26% 20% 34%
Small adult 34% 21% 14% 28% 22% 25% 26%
Single parent 6% 14% 12% 5% 6% 10% 9%
Small family 10% 11% 19% 14% 11% 10% 11%
Large family 2% 4% 7% 0% 7% 4% 4%
Large adult 8% 5% 4% 3% 10% 8% 7%
Older smaller 0% 2% 5% 4% 8% 9% 3%
Single older 2% 6% 10% 11% 10% 14% 6%

Design factor: 1.259

The landlord survey was not weighted, due to population estimates being unavailable.
