The Insights 2015 mailing is a shortened version of our annual findings report and highlights recent research being generated by the study and why it’s important.

What type of research was carried out?

The findings in Insights 2015 are helping to improve lives and build a better future. Here are some examples from the full version.

Chapter one of Insights 2015 looks at the current trends in the housing sector and will help housing associations, mortgage lenders and local government to make better decisions about the future of housing.

Chapter two discusses how our health is affected by our surroundings, lifestyles and even our gender. Such evidence can help inform which transport schemes to invest in, where to build sports facilities or how employers might support their staff to be healthier.

Chapter three focuses on what influences young people’s wellbeing in the UK. The results are helpful for schools, teachers, families and young people themselves.

“The study would not be possible without you”

The Director of Understanding Society, Michaela Benzeval comments on why your help is so important for the development of the study.

“The study would not be possible without you. Every time you are interviewed, you are contributing to a unique study about life in Britain and how it’s changing. Its findings are helping to improve lives and build a better future.”
