About the UK Public Opinion Monitor
The UK Public Opinion Monitor is a unique initiative aimed at understanding how people view life in the UK and what drives changes in their attitudes over time.
The focus of the panel is on aspects of people’s own life, for example their health or relations with others, and on UK society, for example concerns about crime or views on the services provided by government. The data provided by the panel is used by academic researchers in order to inform broad policy debates in the UK.
The monitor involves a permanent panel of 6,000 people, selected to be broadly representative of the UK population. Members of the panel are asked to answer a questionnaire every six to eight weeks. In this way, the UK Public Opinion Monitor enables the changes in the attitudes of individuals to be followed over time and related to broader individual, social and economic factors.
The UK Public Opinion Monitor is a joint initiative of the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) at the University of Sussex and the University of Guelph in Canada. It is partly funded by the Reimagining Development initiative at IDS. The data provided by the panel is used strictly for academic research purposes.
