Social Trends

Progress and Popularity: Facing the Disillusioned in a New Decade

Social Trends Crowd

This Society Watch briefing considers some of the key social trends in the United Kingdom, ten years on from the 40th and last printed version of the compendium Social Trends. It provides a picture of people’s lives and life opportunities, presented from the cradle to the grave. It also shows how lives are developing for the more disadvantaged in our society.

What is life like for people in Britain as we move into the 2020s? Our first Social Trends briefing, Progress and Popularity: Facing the Disillusioned in a New Decade draws on the full range of social research and offers an exclusive window into life in Britain as we enter the 2020s.

This year’s report has been produced exceptionally as part of our 50th anniversary year and is being sponsored by the Economic and Social Research Council.
