Supplementary notes

* Original survey question:
"On a scale of 0 to 10, where 0 is extremely bad and 10 is extremely good, would you say it is generally bad or good for Britain's economy that migrants come to Britain from other countries? "

Figures do not sum to 100 due to the effects of rounding.
