  • Scottish Household Survey 2017

    Created: 04/09/2018

    The Scottish Government have published the results of the Scottish Household Survey 2017.

    Key findings include:

    • Concern about climate change is at a record high, according to findings of the Scottish Household Survey 2017. The annual survey found that 61% of people believe that climate change is an immediate and urgent problem – an increase of 6 percentage points in a single year – and just 7% think climate change will only affect other countries. The biggest growth in concern is among young people aged 16-24, increasing by more than half between 2013 and 2017.
    • 95% of adults rate their neighbourhood as a good place to live and 78% say they have a strong sense of belonging
    • 87% of parents of school age children are satisfied with the quality of service in schools and 83% of users are satisfied with local health services
    • The proportion of households in the private rented sector has plateaued at 15% after a decade of growth and 92% are satisfied with their housing
    • More than half (56%) of people feel they are managing well financially but single parent and single adult households were more likely to report concerns
    • The total number of households in Scotland has increased by 13 per cent from 2.19 million households in 1999 to 2.46 million households in 2017
