How should old age pension in Scotland be funded?
(by residence)
Public opinion on Scottish public pension funding 2013 British survey
This statistic shows how citizens of England and Wales, in comparison to Scotland, feel that money to pay for old age pensions in Scotland should be sourced. Around three-fifths of the people in Scotland are relatively keen that the necessary funding for old age pensions in Scotland is to come from across the UK as a whole. People in England and Wales take much the same view of how these old age pensions should be funded as they do about how income tax revenues should be used, with two-thirds (66%) saying they should be funded from a UK-wide pot. This information also indicates that public opinion on both sides of the border remains sympathetic to the principle of sharing resources and benefits across the UK as a whole, and that might be thought to provide a valuable foundation for continuing collaboration across the UK as a whole should Scotland eventually decide to vote 'No' in the upcoming (September 2014) independence referendum.
