Infographic series for Understanding Society, University of Essex Longitudinal Household study
Does your father’s occupation when you were growing up influence the chances of you being employed later in life? If you left full time education during the great recession of 2008 would you be more likely to be unemployed later in life?
We worked closely with researchers from University College London, University of Essex and University of York to create infographics of their research into these pressing contemporary questions. The infographics sit alongside in-depth articles published in Understanding Society Insights magazine and are intended to give a lay-person an ‘at a glance’ overview into the key findings and statistics.
Understanding Society – the UK Household Longitudinal Study is an innovative world-leading study about 21st century UK life and how it is changing. It captures important information about people’s social and economic circumstances, attitudes, behaviours and health.
The infographics aim to highlight the longitudinal nature of Understanding Society data, which is collected over time by repeated household surveys. The datasets are large and complex and contain a wealth of information about how contemporary issues and events impact society.
