This paper presents some preliminary findings from Wave 10 of the Innovation Panel (IP10) of Understanding Society: The UK Household Longitudinal Study. Understanding Society is a major panel survey in the UK. In May 2017, the tenth wave of the Innovation Panel went into the field. IP10 used a mixed-mode design, using on-line interviews and face-to-face interviews. This paper describes the design of IP10, the experiments carried and the preliminary findings from early analysis of the data.
