British Social Attitudes: The 22nd Report
The 22nd Report
'...the annual survey of British social attitudes - a document arguably more significant than the urban and rural white papers rolled together...'
'...a highly-respected annual study.'
'...an indispensable tool not just for governments, but also for modern citizens to understand their fellows, and themselves better.'
The Times Higher Education Supplement
The British Social Attitudes survey series is carried out by Britain's largest independent social research institute, the National Centre for Social Research. It provides an indispensable guide to current political and social issues in contemporary Britain.
This, the 22nd report, describes the results of the most recent nation-wide survey, including analysis of the following areas:
- Work-life balance
- The NHS
The most comprehensive review of changing British social values available, the British Social Attitudes survey report is an essential reading for anyone seeking a guide to the topical issues and debates of today or engaged in contemporary social and political research.
