ScotCen is very grateful to the various organisations who have contributed to funding the Scottish Social Attitudes Survey over the last few years - particularly the Economic and Social Research Council, the Leverhulme Trust, and the Scottish Government Office of Chief Researcher.
We would also like to thank everyone involved in the preparation of this report - Niamh O'Connor and colleagues at the Scottish Government for feedback on drafts of this report, Catriona Webster at ScotCen for proof reading early versions, and Catherine Bromley, Lisa Given, Clare Sharp and John Curtice at ScotCen for their work on earlier reports on the Scottish Government Core module.
Thanks are also due to our colleagues in NatCen's operations and computing departments (particularly the Red Team, Sandra Beeson and Sue Corbett), to Ann Mair at the Social Statistics Laboratory at Strathclyde University, and to our team of interviewers and supervisors.
Finally, thanks to all those respondents who gave up their free time to take part in the survey.
Responsibility for the opinions expressed in this report, and for all interpretation of the data, lies solely with the author.
