At a personal level, 66 per cent of respondents say they are already taking action to help prevent climate change. Some of the actions mentioned include improving their home’s energy efficiency, driving less (using public transit, active transportation) and changing habits and consumption choices.
Edmontonians want to see more action on climate change, with 69 per cent wanting to do more personally and 66 per cent wanting the City of Edmonton to either maintain or increase efforts.
The online survey was done by Narrative Research, an accredited research company, and data was collected from August 7-16, 2020. This general population panel survey had a sample of 1,001 Edmontonians. As this is a general population non-probability panel survey, to report a margin of error is inappropriate. If this were a probability sample, the margin of error would be +/- 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, based on this sample size.
