This report presents findings from the 2015 Scottish Social Attitudes Survey.

It focuses on three key questions regarding the relationship between the public, the government and public services in Scotland in 2015:

  • What factors are related to trust in government and who people think has, and ought to have, most influence over the way Scotland is run?
  • How have attitudes to government, the National Health Service (NHS), the economy, and standard of living changed over time?
  • Who do people see as responsible for perceived changes in the performance of the NHS, the economy and in standard of living?

Run by ScotCen Social Research since 1999, the Scottish Social Attitudes (SSA) survey provides a reliable and robust picture of changing public attitudes over time.
