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.

Longitudinal data

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.
