Headline results from the May-June 2011 survey:
- A majority of respondents were against the move to the Alternative Vote and had voted against its introduction. However, when asked about other types of electoral reform, for instance Proportional Representation, a small majority were in favour of such changes.
- A majority were of the view that, all thing considered, the UK’s impact on the world was ‘positive’, although some thought that the rest of the world may not see the UK's impact as purely positive.
- Of the 13 areas presented to respondents, those for which the UK was considered to have the most positive influence on the world were human rights, global poverty and arts and culture.
- Many considered the life of people in the UK to be dependent on what happens in the world outside of the UK and that this dependency would increase over time.
- Responses to the survey provide a rather mixed picture regarding respondents’ satisfaction with life. Many indicated that they were satisfied with their life, but few suggested that they would not change anything if they could live their life again.
