Description: Using data from the Health Education Population Survey, 2007, this report presents an update on time trends in health-related knowledge, attitudes, motivations and behaviours in Scotland over the period 1996-2007. The report focuses on areas where there has been a change in 2007, or consolidation of an earlier change. The 2007 update is the last annual report from the survey in its original form. From 2008, the survey has been replaced with the Knowledge, Attitudes and Motivations (KAM) module in the Scottish Health Survey (SHS).
