Based at the Institute for Social and Economic Research at Essex, Understanding Society is the biggest longitudinal study of its kind. Since 2009, Understanding Society has been going back and speaking to the same 100,000 individuals from 40,000 households.   This wealth of data is providing powerful insights into everything from attitudes to family, education and employment to health and wellbeing.  It is crucial to effective policy making, for business and industry, and for the organisations, charities, councils and governments supporting, delivering and improving services.
