Public views on carbon sequestration

Viewed: 952

This dataset consists of one SPSS (statistical processing package) file which lists the responses from 1273 people who participated in a survey about their perceptions of carbon sequestration.

In 2005, an Australian market research company was commissioned to survey members of an online panel in return for entry into a prize draw, where participants could win up to $2000 worth of gift vouchers. The quantitative survey was performed with the aim of providing a benchmark of current perceptions of a potential greenhouse gas problem and reactions to a possible solution, as well as the attitudes, expectations and fears of specific sub-groups of respondents. The majority of respondents were female (79%) with the mean age of the sample 36.6 years, ranging from 18 to 79 years.
