This is the twelfth wave of research which Ipsos MORI (and previously MORI) has conducted. In previous years the work has been sponsored by the Medical Research Council (in 1999), New Scientist magazine (in 1999), the Coalition for Medical Progress (in 2002 and 2005), the Department of Trade and Industry (in 2006), BERR (in 2007) and BIS (since 2008). In 2012, the study was sponsored by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).
To ensure comparability, all waves of the research have been conducted using nationally-representative face-to-face ‘omnibus’ surveys. In the latest wave (conducted on Ipsos MORI’s weekly ‘Capibus’), 1,026 adults from across Great Britain aged 15+ were interviewed in-home from 31 March – 8 April 2012. The data have been weighted by gender, age, region, and social class, to reflect the known 15+ population profile of Great Britain.
The research carried out for this project has been in compliance with the Market Research Society (MRS) / ESOMAR Code, the Data Protection Act, and ISO 20252.
