A nationally representative sample of adult men and women, from across the four provinces was asked, “At the beginning of a new year, some people make resolutions and decide not to repeat past mistakes.

Do you make resolutions at the start of a new year?” In response to this question, 13% respondents said they do make New Year’s resolutions, while 87% respondents do not.

This question has also been asked in previous years and results have been quite similar. In 2011, 22% said they make New Year’s resolutions while 77% said they do not and 1% did not respond.
