PDF icon 2005_science_report.pdf1.31 KB

This survey investigated public attitudes and beliefs about science. 

The project built on previous research carried by ACNielson in consultation with NZCER. AC Nielson carried out a repeat of the 2002 survey:
Commonsense, trust and science: How patterns of beliefs and attitudes to science pose challenges for effective communication

We found a very similar pattern of responses, with the level of interest in any branch of science linked to perceptions of its usefulness.
