The Domestic Sentiment Tracker is based on a UK nationally representative sample of 1,500 adults aged 16+ with additional boosts for Scotland and Wales. This initially ran across a consecutive 13 week period between May and August 2020 and was succeeded by a second phase, updated on a fortnightly cadence, between September 2020 and February 2021. A third phase commenced in March 2021, consisting of 13 fortnightly waves extending the tracker through to August 2021. The fourth phase was conducted monthly from November 2021 till May 2022. The current, fifth wave, continues on a monthly basis, while the focus of the topics covered has shifted from Covid-19 impact towards the cost of living crisis impact on trip intentions.
The next monthly report is due 17th February 2023. For more dates, please see our reporting schedule here.
