Welcome to the CAST Data Portal

This is a resource for policymakers and civil society practitioners to engage with the findings of the Centre. Here you can access, explore and visualise survey data collected by the CAST Centre through our interactive dashboards and Key Insight summaries. This tool provides a window into our data as it emerges, and will give the means to track and understand changes between and within countries across the Centre’s lifetime.

CAST data available to explore

The portal currently provides access to the first wave of public survey data collected by CAST in 2020, which focuses on the UK, China, Brazil and Sweden. This includes attitudinal perspectives on climate change, policy measures and willingness to make lifestyle changes. A summary of the second wave of survey data, collected in 2021, is available in CAST Briefing 10.

Click on the links below to access the dashboards and see key findings. Currently, the dashboards are best viewed on a computer or tablet screen.
