Climate Survey 2017

Results and analysis of national Climate of Change Survey

Partners of EcoAnalytics will have access this fall to the full cross-tabulations and a companion report offering trenchant analysis of our second Climate of Change Survey, fielded in October 2017. This poses 40 questions to a representative sample of 1,200 Canadians, and builds on a longitudinal set reaching back to 2011.

Each page of the cross-tabulations, available in November, present the 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.

Full analysis of the findings, will be available in December in a companion report Climate of Change: Analysis of a national survey of Canadian opinions about climate and energy issues, by Erick Lachapelle and his team of researchers at l'Université de Montréal.

Climate of Change: Analysis of a national survey of Canadian opinions about climate and energy issues, Dec. 2016, by Erick Lachapelle, Valérie-Anne Mahéo, PhD and Professor Richard Nadeau, Université de Montréal

As last year, this study will dig 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.

How should we interpret Canadians' belief that governments should take bold climate action? What are the implications of new data on the degree to which different demographic segments view climate change as a personal threat? And what levers could move  receptive segments of the population further up Canada's ladder of engagement for climate action? These are some of the questions addressed.
