Every year the British Social Attitudes survey asks over 3,000 people what it's like to live in Britain and how they think Britain is run. The survey tracks people's changing social, political and moral attitudes and informs the development of public policy.
It has been conducted annually since 1983 and is NatCen's longest running survey. 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. So far over 85,000 people have taken part.
