This report surveyed a 3,000 strong sample of the British population on their attitudes towards multiple aspects of tax and spending, including:
- The balance of tax and spending
- Attitudes to different tax rises
- Attitudes to current tax levels
- Support for higher or lower pay in the public sector
- Support for cuts by specific programme
- Rules to control government borrowing
The report also conducted a comparison with the British Social Attitudes survey, finding significant attitude changes since the last BSA survey in 2007.
