Summary

  • At a total sample level 68% agree with the ultimate aim of reaching ‘excellent’ on the Equalities Framework, 15% disagree
  • As previously, agreement with the ultimate aim decreases with age. 84% of those aged 16-44 agree, 75% aged 45-64, and 66% aged 65+ agree
  • Females are more likely than males to agree with the aim (85% vs 62%)
  • When ‘strongly agree’ and ‘agree’ are grouped together there is very little difference in response based on sexual orientation, ethnicity or disability. However, more respondents with a disability, from other ethnic groups and with a different sexual orientation ‘strongly agree’ with this aim
