Wellcome Trust Monitor Report Wave 3 - April 2016

Ipsos MORI conducted a survey of the UK public aged 18 or over conducted on behalf of the Wellcome Trust. The Wellcome Trust Monitor is designed to measure the public’s awareness, interests, knowledge and attitudes in relation to science, and in particular, biomedical research. The Wellcome Trust Monitor is conducted every three years in order to measure long-term trends in public attitudes and behaviours. The first (baseline) wave was conducted in 2009 by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen), and the second in 2012 by Ipsos MORI.

Interviews were achieved with 1,524 adults, face-to-face, using computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI), between 2 June and 1 November 2015. Interviews took 45 minutes on average. The response rate was 51.4 per cent1 . Data have been weighted to adjust for differing probabilities of selection, and to adjust the sample to match the UK population by age within gender, and by region.
