Perceptions of just agricultural transitions in England,2022

How to cite this Dataset


This dataset contains the results of a survey that was conducted through a Qualtrics panel of the English adult population during the period January-April 2022. The survey is the first in its kind in taking a psychometric approach to assessing justice perceptions related to agricultural transitions. The aim was to develop and test a practical tool that can be used to examine perceptions of a just transition in the agricultural context and that can support governments to inform their governance of agricultural sustainability transitions.
We aimed to collect a representative sample with a sample size of N=400, taking account of age, gender, education, income, and distribution across England. Attempted responses were terminated when a quota in a certain group (gender, age, education level, geographical location, income) was met, when the respondent was younger than 18, or when they were speeding through the survey to such an extent that it would not be possible to read the questions in the used timeframe. Further responses were excluded based on duplication, straight lining, or partial response. The survey was live collecting responses until a representative sample of N=400 was reached.
