If you have recently received a letter asking you to take part, you will be asked to opt-in to the telephone survey by filling in your contact details online or by contacting NatCen on freephone 0800 652 4572 or email EHS@natcen.ac.uk. One of our interviewers will then call you to arrange a time to carry out the interview.
So that you know who they are, all of our interviewers will tell you their name and that they are a NatCen interviewer contacting you about the English Housing Survey.
We understand that you may be busy, so we’ll organise the interview at a time that suits you.
Your interviewer will ask you about a range of topics including your housing circumstances, satisfaction with your home and neighbourhood, and energy efficiency in your home.
And don’t worry – you don’t have to answer any questions you don’t want to, we can just skip on to the next one.
No need to prepare
There’s no need to prepare for the interview. You don’t need any special knowledge, we just want to hear about your daily life and what you think. Most people agree to be interviewed and enjoy taking part.
