Understanding Society (UK)
Understanding Society is a major research study designed to provide valuable new evidence about the people of the UK, their lives, experiences, behaviours and beliefs.
Understanding Society every year track the fortunes, attitudes and circumstances of people living in Britain. We follow teenagers as they grow up; see how families respond to unemployment or serious illness and see how people feel about the communities where they live.
We are following 40,000 households year by year and asking them questions about a wide spectrum of areas relating to their working and personal lives. Understanding Society tells us about:
People's state of health
Our experiences of crime
Bringing up children
How involved we are in our local community
Our working lives
Our views and outlook, including about the political system
