Concern on climate change grows

The proportion of adults viewing climate change as an immediate and urgent problem has grown from less than half in 2013 to nearly two thirds in 2018 according to the Scottish Household Survey which has been running for 20 years.

The Scottish Household Survey commenced in 1999. It reaches 10,000 people each year from every kind of household and asks questions on a wide range of topics.

In 2018, around three quarters (74 per cent) of adults surveyed agreed they understood what actions they should take to help tackle climate change.

The survey also shows that 67% of 16-24 year olds care about climate change compared to 38% in 2013.

The climate change and environment results from the survey are available here.
