About this study
Every year since 1983, the British Social Attitudes report has lifted the lid on what people in Britain think about today's issues and debates.
You can read short summaries of the findings here. Topics covered include:
The British Social Attitudes survey involves over 3,000 interviews annually.
Participants are selected using a technique called random probability sampling. This technique ensures that everyone has a fair chance of taking part in the survey and the results are representative of the British population.
New areas of questioning 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.
