Deadline approaching to take part in Social Attitudes Survey

Tuesday, 22 May 2018

The deadline is approaching for people to respond to the 2018 Social Attitudes Survey.

The online questionnaire provides an opportunity for members of the public to tell Government what they think about living in the Isle of Man.

People have until midnight on Monday 28 May 2018 to complete the Cabinet Office survey, which gauges opinion about issues such as crime and safety, transport and travel, housing, employment, population and Brexit.

One section focuses on healthcare funding and the feedback will support the gathering of evidence as part of the independent review of the Isle of Man healthcare system being conducted by Sir Jonathan Michael.

The survey also asks for views about the best and worst things about living in the Island, confidence in Government and satisfaction with public services.

The results are used by Government to inform policy development, to assess its performance and to gain a better insight into public opinion.

The survey is easy to complete by either ticking the appropriate boxes or writing answers in the spaces provided. All information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence and only anonymised summaries will be published.

Any enquiries about the Social Attitudes Survey should be directed to Dr Erin Stepney at the Economic Affairs Division of the Cabinet Office by emailing or calling +44 1624 685743.
