Our considerable experience of measuring and interpreting social attitudes is best exemplified by our British Social Attitudes survey, set up in 1983.
Health & wellbeing
Our research spans general health and lifestyle studies to studies focussing on particular health issues or sections of the population.
Income & work
Our work in this area includes taking stock of the financial circumstances of the population as a whole, as well as smaller more specific studies.
Schools, education & training
We conduct a number of studies relating to education and skills, from evaluations of school-based initiatives, to studies into childcare provision.
Crime & justice
Our work spans: victimisation and crime & punishment; the civil justice system; and the organisation of the legal profession.
Our studies range from how people volunteer in Britain today and investigating why communities fragment, as in the case of the August riots.
We have substantial experience of conducting large, complex surveys, as well as in-depth, qualitative studies in most areas covered by family policies.
Equality & diversity
We have a long tradition and extensive experience of conducting research about social inclusion.
