All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc. Total sample size was 1,705 adults. Fieldwork was undertaken between 20–21st May 2012. The survey was carried out online. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all GB adults (aged 18+).

The survey was conducted using an online interview administered members of the YouGov GB panel of 185,000+ individuals who have agreed to take part in surveys. An email was sent to panellists selected at random from the base sample according to the sample definition, inviting them to take part in the survey and providing a link to the survey. (The sample definition could be 'GB adult population' or a subset such as 'GB adult females'). YouGov normally achieves a response rate of between 35 per cent and 50 per cent to surveys, however this does vary dependent upon the subject matter, complexity and length of the questionnaire. The responding sample is weighted to the profile of the sample definition to provide a representative reporting sample. The profile is normally derived from census data or, if not available from the census, from industry-accepted data.
