Supplementary notes

Question originally posed as ''How often, if at all, do you personally do any of the following?''
Percentages may not total 100 percent due to rounding.
Survey base varied across the years.

Survey methodology up 2019 was a Kantar face-to-face omnibus survey. In March 2021, a temporary Kantar online panel type of survey was introduced, which was not based on a random sample of respondents. From autumn 2021 onwards, the survey primarily used an Address Based Online Surveying (ABOS) method. Due to a change in survey methodology, the source states that direct comparisons between time series is not possible.
