Welcome to the CAST Data Portal: Public views on climate

From 2020-2023, CAST undertook a set of global surveys with over 15,500 (adult) participants from the UK, Brazil, China and Sweden. In our research, we discovered that a large majority of respondents from across borders, age groups and financial backgrounds are supportive of action on climate change. The CAST Data Portal provides full free unlimited access to this data, allowing you to explore these findings in detail.  

The CAST Data Portal consists of three separate dashboards covering public perceptions on climate change (Climate Views), low-carbon lifestyle changes and policy support (Climate Action), as well as the public’s views on effective climate action and trust and responsibility (Trust and Action).

In each dashboard, you can explore perceptions over time, by socio-demographic variables (e.g., age, income, political orientation) and by country. 

Explore the dashboards by clicking the buttons below.

For more information on the CAST Data Portal methodology, question wording and interpretation of the data, visit our methodology webpage.

Not all questions used in the surveys are displayed in the CAST Data Portal. We also produced briefings and infographics for each survey wave, which can be downloaded from the list below.

Please note that exact percentages for a specific question may differ due to rounding or weighting of data. For further information on our research methodology, please contact the CAST team at info@cast.ac.uk.

The CAST Data Portal was inspired by the Yale Climate Communication tool.
