Understanding Society Podcast Series


Building Understanding Society - from surveys to data

Season 3, Ep. 7

In this final episode of season 3 of our podcast series we take a closer look at Understanding Society itself. How do we turn survey responses into data for research? How do we select who takes part in the survey? And what makes household panel data so useful for researchers and policymakers? Series host, Catherine McDonald, talks to the people who design and implement Understanding Society - taking the survey from methodological testing, through fieldwork and data processing, to ending with the anonymised dataset.
