UK: Understanding Society: Findings 2012
Source: Understanding Society (UK)
From the Preface:
The United Kingdom today is a society in transition. The impact of the economic recession, changing lifestyles, an increasingly heterogeneous population and evolving family structures are just some of the elements that are contributing to significant social change.The choices people make about their lifestyles – where they live, how they bring up their children, their leisure activities, even what they choose to eat – are in turn affected by these major currents of economic and social change...
Snapshots like these of aspects of contemporary British life are in many ways unprecedented. Because of the size of the Understanding Society sample – approximately 100,000 individuals in 40,000 households – it is possible to delve into such topics in unprecedented detail.
