Abstract

This paper summarises key findings from a module of questions on attitudes to discrimination and positive action included in the Scottish Social Attitudes (SSA) survey 2010. The survey explores attitudes to discrimination in relation to gender, age, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation and transgender. This is the third time a module of questions on attitudes to discrimination has been included in SSA, enabling analysis of changes in attitudes over time. The SSA survey involves around 1,500 interviews annually, with respondents selected using random probability sampling to ensure that the results are robust and representative of the Scottish population.
