Understanding Public Confidence in different groups

While the headline statistics on policing performance are positive, intersectional time series analysis provides a more complex view. In conducting bivariate and multivariate analysis of Scottish Government and SPA public polling, a number of cohorts have been identified which will become key focus areas for future work.

As detailed in the following sections, these cohorts are segments of the population that: are either consistently at the upper and lower extents of views across the years; whose views swung between the uppermost and lowermost extents of the data across the years; or whose views consistently differed substantially from their comparator.
