British Social Attitudes
The British Social Attitudes survey has been carried out annually since 1983 and is our longest running survey. Over 90,000 people have taken part in the study so far.
New report out now
The latest 35th report is now available on our dedicated BSA website. There you will also find reports going back to BSA 28. The 34th report, "How wil Britain navigate the global, social and economic challenges of the near future?" covers the following topics:
It is now possible to fund questions on the British Social Attitudes survey. We are currently finalising questions for the 2018 survey. If you are interested in understanding the views and opinions of the British public, and tapping into 30 years of trend data, please get in touch.
Every year we ask over 3,000 people what it's like to live in Britain and how they think Britain is run.
New questions are added each year to reflect current issues, but all questions are designed with a view to repeating them periodically to chart changes over time.
The people selected to participate in the survey are chosen using a technique called random probability sampling. This technique ensures that everyone has a fair chance of being picked to take part and the results are representative of the British population. Once selected, participants are interviewed in their homes by one of NatCen’s interviewers.
Data from the study can be downloaded or analysed via the UK Data Archive
