The Minnesota Report Card on Environmental Literacy: A Benchmark Survey of Adult Environmental Knowledge, Attitudes and Behavior.
Murphy, Tony P.
This report documents the results of the first statewide survey concerning the environmental literacy of adults in Minnesota. During July-September 2001, a random sample of 1000 adults were surveyed for their knowledge about, attitudes toward, and behaviors related to the environment. This report describes the environmental literacy of Minnesotans and compares Minnesotans' literacy on related survey questions to that of Pennsylvania residents and other United States citizens. The report is divided into four parts. The first three sections discuss the survey in terms of knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors while the final section offers an integrated perspective on the overall report and Minnesota adults' environmental literacy.
