Supplementary notes

ONS defines 'no response' as no data provided to the question by an eligible responder.
Face-to-face and telephone interviews were used. During the face to face interviews, respondents were asked; ‘Which of the options on this card best describes how you think of yourself?’ For telephone interviews, the interview said ‘I will now read out a list of terms that people use to describe how they think of themselves’. The list was read out to the respondents twice. On the second reading, the respondent had to say ‘stop’ when an appropriate term they identified with was read out. In both modes, the order in which the terms appeared or were read out was unique for each respondent to ensure confidentiality.
Percentages might not add to 100 per cent due to rounding.
