COVID-19 Population Survey: Wave 4

The Covid-19 Population Surveys aim to better understand the Scottish population’s attitudes to attending cultural events and venues.

Commissioned by Creative Scotland and undertaken by 56 Degree Insight, this report sets out the findings of the fourth wave of the research, with fieldwork undertaken between the 12th and 31st February 2022.

In addition to the aim of updating our understanding of public opinion on returning to cultural activity, this latest report considers emergent barriers to cultural participation, such as new COVID-19 variants, seasonal engagement and the rising cost of living that could impact comfort levels and booking patterns in the future. As the Scottish population begins to adapt to living with COVID, this survey aims to reveal what a ‘new normal’ will look like for the arts and cultural sector.
