Understanding Society is one of the largest household panel studies in the world. We follow thousands of households from across the UK to find out about people's real experiences of living and working in the UK today. Understanding Society asks questions about family life, education, employment, health, finances, social and political attitudes and wellbeing.
The data from the Study is used by university researchers, government departments, charities and think tanks to better understand how the UK population is changing - and what stays the same over time.
Our podcast series takes a look at some of the issues raised by the Understanding Society survey. The podcasts feature researchers who use the data and guest contributors who work in relevant areas.
