Supplementary notes

* The figures for 'prejudiced' are a combination of those who answered 'very prejudiced' (between 1 and 4 percent) and those who answered 'a little prejudiced'. Figures do not always sum to 100 due to 'don't know' and 'refused to answer' respondents.

** 2017 data taken from the NatCen Panel. Base varied between 1,035 in 1998 and 4,432 in 2003.
