- Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the monetary value of all goods and services produced in a country in a given year.
- Spending for 2012 based on spending plans for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
- The question on satisfaction with A&E departments was not introduced until 1999.
- Correlation between Labour and Liberal Democrats r=0.92; correlation between Conservative and Labour r=0.49.
- The correlation is very high between the two age groups: r=0.88.
- Weighted bases for Table 4.1 are as follows:
- There have been some minor variations to this question over the years. 1983-1994 the answer options were "support" and "oppose"; 1995-2010 the answer options were "support a lot", "support a little", "oppose a lot", "oppose a little", with respondents being prompted to say "a little" or "a lot"; in 2011 the same four answer options were retained but also added to a showcard.
- In statistical terms, there is a strong negative correlation between the level of satisfaction with the NHS and views on increasing taxation and spending (over the whole period from 1983 to 2012, r=-0.85). There is a similar, but positive, correlation with the opinions that taxes and spending should be kept the same (and with views on reducing taxes and spending).
