1. Tables for all subgroups are provided in the supporting documents, whether differences are significant or not.

2. Since 1999, the Scottish Social Attitudes survey has included an attitude scale which aims to measure respondents' underlying political views and whether these are situated to the left or right of the political spectrum. The scale consists of five statements to which the respondent is invited to "agree strongly", "agree", "neither agree nor disagree", "disagree" or "disagree strongly". The scores to all the questions in the scale are added and then divided by the number of items in the scale, giving indices ranging from 1 (left) to 5 (right).

3. Tables for all subgroups are provided in the supporting Excel documents on the Scottish Government website.
