Collection description

The aim of the survey was to explore how the restrictions on movement were impacting the UK population’s visits to green space, and how these behaviours differed between population groups (e.g. by ethnicity, age, and health status). The survey was conducted using an online interview administered to members of the YouGov Plc UK panel of 800,000+ individuals who agreed to take part in surveys. The survey was completed between 30th April to 1st May 2020, with a nationally representative sample of 2,252 respondents.

In the survey, respondents were asked about how their frequency of green space visits changed following restrictions on movement, as well as whether experiences and barriers to use changed. Questions on garden access, pet ownership, household size, urban/rural status and long-standing illnesses/health conditions were also included. Demographic data was provided by YouGov (including sex, age, geographic region, ethnicity, social grade, marital status, working status, the number of children in household, government region and social media usage).
