'…British Social Attitudes remains a beacon of excellence. It has adapted to the times…providing a rich and textured guide to who we think we are, what we think and how that has changed' - Financial Times

'…an indispensable tool not just for governments, but also for modern citizens to understand their fellows, and themselves better' - The Times Higher Education Supplement

'…shows what the British people really think, as opposed to what journalists and politicians like to pretend they think' - John Pilger

The annual British Social Attitudes survey is carried out by Britain’s largest independent social research organization, the National Centre for Social Research. It provides an indispensable guide to political and social issues in contemporary Britain.

This 25th Report summarizes and interprets data from the most recent nationwide survey, as well as drawing invaluable comparisons with the findings of previous years to provide a richer picture and deeper understanding of changing British social values.

Now celebrating its quarter-century, The British Social Attitudes survey report is essential reading for anyone seeking a guide to the topical issues and debates of today or engaged in contemporary social and political research.
