British Social Attitudes
NatCen's British Social Attitudes survey asks around 3,000 people what it's like to live in Britain and what they think about how Britain is run. Since 1983 we've been measuring and tracking changes in people's social, political and moral attitudes. The survey is a critical gauge of public opinion, and is used by the government, journalists, opinion formers and academics.
NatCen's Society Watch series was first published in 2020 and provides a snapshot of what life is like for people in Britain today, focused around a particularly timely societal issue. This annual report presents the related research and evidence, from cradle to the grave, including a case study, examining a key theme from the evidence presented in more detail.
