Support for independence has increased despite growing anxiety about how a Yes vote would affect Scotland's economy and international standing, according to a survey.
The latest Scottish Social Attitudes survey found support for a Yes vote increased from 36% to 39% during the last 12 months, while No support fell from 64% to 61%, excluding undecided voters.
Despite this, 38% now feel an independent Scotland's influence on the world stage would be weaker, up from a quarter in 2013. Fears have also increased over the state of the economy under independence, with 44% believing it would be worse, an increase of 10 points since last year.
