The feasibility of conducting a Universal Credit panel survey
AuthorsHeather Laurie, Nick Buck, Jonathan Burton, Violetta Parutis, Mark L. Bryan, Peter Lugtig and Mike Brewer
Changes in behaviour and attitudes to work, work search, benefits and money management;
Whether policies to smooth the transition to work are having the required effect;
Whether individuals understand the benefit system and their behaviour in response to Universal Credit conditionality.
A feasibility study was considered to be necessary before commissioning such a study because panel studies are complex and potentially resource intensive.
