Here is our round-up from this week, enjoy!
1. Do you trust your neighbour? 🔑
Retirement community experts McCarthy and Stone have conducted some research looking at our relationships with our neighbours.
Some headlines include:
36% of the UK spent money on their neighbours during the pandemic.
46% of us have given a key to our neighbour.
Southampton came out on top with regards to having the nicest neighbours.
There are some really interesting numbers in this report which you can read here.
2. Do you love a conspiracy theory? 🔎
Research from Sky HISTORY released this week, shows the conspiracy theories that the UK public believe to be true.
Ranging from Princess Di to Paul McCartney; 9/11 to JFK, the moon landings to Stonehenge being created by aliens; if these topics are of interest, you should check out this article.
3. Is there a right age to become a parent? 🍼
Research company YouGov came under a bit of scrutiny recently when they pushed out a survey to find the ‘ideal’ age to become a parent.
Unsurprisingly, more fuel was poured on the flames when they highlighted the difference between the views of men and women.
46% of men think a woman at 36 is too old to become a mum. 😮
The survey unfortunately highlights continued gender equality issues in society.
More details can be found here.
4. Smokers coming under fire again! 🚬
Research by Swedish Match has found over 60% of people want smoking and vaping banned in pub gardens.
75% believe smokers should check with non-smokers before lighting up.
Interestingly, one in five felt ’empowered’ when asking friends not to vape or smoke around them.
You can read more on this study here.
5. Fancy a 4-day week? 🗓
Employees aside, there are benefits to a 4-day working week.
Reducing carbon emissions, improving mental health and increasing productivity apparently.
I’m surprised the number is not higher but data from Survation shows that 64% of people support the idea of a 4 day week with no reduction in earnings……. hmmm.
Read more on the subject here.
6. Do you like to DIY? 🪚
Radiator company BestHeating have found this week that 13% of Brits can do no DIY around the house. 61% say they could only do the most basic tasks.
They also ranked the chores that we all hate doing the most.
Coming top is repairing or installing a new radiator, to be fair that’s a big ask.
The list also included tasks such as laying new flooring, fixing a tap, unblocking drains and even painting.
If DIY is of interest, you can see more on this report here.
7. Are Audi drivers the most popular? 🚗
According to research commissioned by YesAuto the answer is yes.
25% of Audi drivers have over 1,000 followers on social media sites.
The research also revealed that Mercedes drivers are the most opinionated and VW drivers are the biggest foodies.
If you want to know what the car you drive says about you, more details can be found here.
