Increase in number of people making 2016 resolutions compared to 2015

A poll by Kantar's Lightspeed GMI shows that more of us have made 2016 New Year resolutions than in 2015, although the majority still aren't bothered. In 2015, 76% of people questioned said they have not made any resolutions, this has decreased to 71% in 2016.

We asked 4,955 people on the 6th January 2016 whether they made any New Year resolutions. 24% of people said they had made a resolution and not broken it, so far! This is up from 19% of people in 2015. A similar number of people have already broken their New Year resolution, 4% of people in 2015 v 5% of people in 2016.

In general, the older you are, the less like you are to have made a New Year resolution, 48% of people under 24 years old say they did not make a resolution, compared to 84% of people over 55 years old. There is very little difference between the sexes.
