One of the most important parts of our research is how people are getting by financially these days. We have found that we need to ask about a number of different types of income, otherwise our results could be misleading. Please think about ALL of the extra sources of income you receive, as well as any benefits or tax credits. GRIDVARIABLES.ModeType = 1 | 2If you are at all unsure about whether something would count, you can check with me. We'd like to remind you that anything you tell us is completely confidential.
