    The sample was recruited by means of a random location, quota-based methodology in Lower Super Output Areas where Muslims constituted at least 20% of the population. A qualitative phase of research comprised ten focus groups of Muslims in England and Wales. A control sample of 2047 Britons aged 18 and over was interviewed online on 24-25 August 2016 and asked a sub-set of questions addressed to the Muslim sample (rephrased, where appropriate).
