This factsheet provides a summary of Scottish data on experiences of kindness, attitudes and behaviours towards public engagement, and self-identification of place.

The data was collected by Ipsos MORI, on behalf of the Carnegie UK Trust. Surveys were run using representative random sampling in each of the five jurisdictions in the UK and Ireland. Data in this factsheet is based on telephone interviews with 1,050 adults (over the age of 16) in Scotland in March 2018.

Other titles in the ‘Quantifying kindness’ suite of reports include:

  • A data booklet that compares the five jurisdictions, as well as providing more detail on methodology and analysis.
  • Country Factsheets, covering data for England, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
