Why take part?
A token of our appreciation
As a thank you, we include a £10 Post Office voucher in the letters we send to people, inviting them to take part. You can use this to claim £10 cash from any Post Office branch.
If you haven’t been asked to take part, thanks for your interest, but unfortunately we can only talk to those people who have been randomly selected.
How Scottish Social Attitudes has made a difference
Your views are vital to getting a true picture of Scotland today. And your opinions could go on to influence the big decisions on issues like education, healthcare and welfare. This is your chance to have your say, to shape the decisions of politicians, charities and campaigners.
We really hope that you agree to take part. As you were selected at random we can’t replace you.
In the last survey, we wanted to find out more about people’s attitudes towards government and the economy, as well as to understand public views on dementia.
Because we’ve been asking these questions for 20 years, Scottish Social Attitudes is uniquely placed to show how views have changed. Our findings are widely reported and used by politicians on all sides of the debate.
A little time to make a big difference
We’re just asking that you spare a little time to share your thoughts and opinions. We know your time is precious, but your input really does make a difference. With your support we can help government and charities make the right decisions about the big issues.
Everyone’s talking about it
You can be part of one of the most important indicators of national opinion. That’s why the press and people in government and charities are listening to what you have to say. The results have been widely reported in papers including The Herald, The Scotsman and the Scottish Daily Mail, as well as featuring on television and being discussed at Holyrood.
