In that time, there have been a number of changes to how the study is conducted in terms of approach and questions asked. As it is mentioned within last year's report, they listened to charities and their thirst for greater knowledge about giving behaviours in the UK and took the decision to move to a monthly tracking study rather than interviewing at four separate points in the year.
