Supplementary notes

* From 2012 to 2020, the question was: 'Before today, how much, if anything did you know about hydraulic fracturing for shale gas, otherwise known as 'fracking'?'

Survey base varied across the years.

Survey methodology up to 2018 was a Kantar face-to-face omnibus survey. Between 2020 and 2021, a temporary Kantar online panel type of survey was introduced, which was not based on a random sample of respondents. Due to a change in survey methodology, the source states that direct comparisons between time series is not possible.
