This paper presents the results of a baseline survey undertaken for the Norfolk Island Carbon Health Evaluation (NICHE) project and analyzes the relationships among key variables hypothesized as affecting respondents’ intentions to use a personal carbon trading (PCT) system. The survey was delivered to all households on Norfolk Island and gathered information on respondent’s attitudes towards climate change, PCT and health, as well as demographic and household information. The intention of the study was to investigate the relationship between health and climate change and whether attitudes can be influenced by an understanding of one’s carbon footprint prior to the roll out of a PCT trial.
