About this study
Every year since 1983, the British Social Attitudes report has lifted the lid on how people's lives are changing and their views on how Britain is run.
This year's report has its own dedicated website.
Topics covered in the report
Early findings include:
Drop in public satisfaction with the NHS
Popularity of the coalition government's constitutional reforms
English attitudes to Scottish devolution
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.
