The Deltapoll Survey: Sample Details
- ^ Technical note. The results in this table relate to the third of three questions. The first asked about taxes and listed “income tax, national insurance, VAT, excise duty (on petrol, alcohol, tobacco etc), council tax, taxes on companies, stamp duty and so on”. The second asked about government spending and listed “the NHS, schools, pensions, child benefit, welfare benefits, social care, law and order, roads and local council services (such as rubbish collection, housing, fire services, parks and so on)”. In other words, when we asked people about whether their family paid more or received more, it was after respondents had been reminded of the main elements on both sides of the equation.
- ^ This estimate is derived from 2011 census data. As they are ten years old, and use a different way of assessing social grade, the figure is subject to a considerable margin of error – hence the wide 30 to 40 per cent range.
