From the 18th of May to the 14th of June 2020, German households were surveyed on the subject of climate change in the course of the project 'Evaluation of German Climate Protection and Adaptation Practice' (Eval-MAP II). Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), Eval-MAP II is a follow-up project of the pre-conducted surveys from 2012 to 2015. It is thus the 5th survey in total and the 3rd survey on the topic of climate adaption. In this report we describe the survey methodology, the sample characteristics, and summary statistics of selected variables.
