Climate Survey

Results and analysis of national Climate of Change Survey

Partners of EcoAnalytics can now access the full results and a companion report offering trenchant analysis of EcoAnalytics Climate of Change Survey, which posed 40 questions to a representative sample of 1,200 Canadians in October 2016.

The data can be found in our EcoAnalytics Climate of Change Cross-tab Results, by our Research Partner Erick Lachapelle, Associate Professor of Political Science at l’Université de Montréal.

Each page presents cross-tabulated data for a different question, highlighting differences in the answers given by respondents based on six demographic characteristics: gender, age, language, education, region and voting preference.

Climate of Change: Analysis of a national survey of Canadian opinions about climate and energy issues, by Erick Lachapelle, Valérie-Anne Mahéo, PhD and Professor Richard Nadeau, Université de Montréal

For full analysis of the results, see the companion report Climate of Change: Analysis of a national survey of Canadian opinions about climate and energy issues, by Erick Lachapelle, Valérie-Anne Mahéo, PhD and Professor Richard Nadeau, Université de Montréal (Dec.2016).

This trenchant study digs into the survey data to offer a fresh, fine-grained picture of Canadians’ current attitudes on these momentous issues, with insights for the environmental change-makers.

What to make of our belief that governments are responsible for taking bold climate action? How to interpret new data on the degree to which Canadians view climate change as a personal threat? And where to leverage changes in attitude among four distinct groups of Canadians on a ladder of engagement for climate action, revealed by the survey? These are some of the questions addressed.
