Public opinion in GB on possible Scottish independence post-Brexit, by age group

This statistic illustrates results from an online survey conducted in Great Britain in October 2016 on whether the prospect of Scottish independence will become more likely now that Britain is leaving the EU, by age group. A majority of those belonging to the youngest age group believed that Scottish independence is more probable, while only 28 percent of those aged 65 and older thought so. Instead, most respondents from this age group were convinced that it will make no difference.

Do you think leaving the EU will make it more or less likely that Scotland will leave the UK?
