- Figures in the tables are from the 2010 British Social Attitudes survey unless otherwise stated.
- Tables are percentaged as indicated by the percentage signs.
- In tables, ‘*’ indicates less than 0.5% but greater than zero, and ‘–’ indicates zero.
- When findings based on the responses of fewer than 100 respondents are reported in the text, reference is made to the small base size.
- Percentages equal to or greater than 0.5 have been rounded up (e.g. 0.5% = 1%; 36.5% = 37%).
- In many tables the proportions of respondents answering “Don’t know” or not giving an answer are not shown. This, together with the effects of rounding and weighting, means that percentages will not always add to 100%.
- The self-completion questionnaire was not completed by all respondents to the main questionnaire (see Appendix I). Percentage responses to the self-completion questionnaire are based on all those who completed it.
- The bases shown in the tables (the number of respondents who answered the question) are printed in small italics. The bases are unweighted, unless otherwise stated.
