Scottish independence: Is the referendum a good idea? 2013 survey

This statistic shows a distribution of respondents to a survey question designed to find out what those residing in Scotland think about the vote on independence. With the referendum looming, when Scotland will vote 'yes' or 'no' for independence from the United Kingdom, this question asked the respondents to put aside their views on the issue of independence itself and say what they thought about the referendum generally, the fact that it is going to take place. In January 2013, the majority of respondents (64 percent) said it was quite good or very good that it was happening.

Do you think it is a good idea or bad idea that the independence referendum is going ahead?
