About British Social Attitudes surveys
Every year the British Social Attitudes survey asks over 3,000 people what it's like to live in Britain and how they think Britain is run. Since 1983 the survey has been tracking people's changing social, political and moral attitudes. The surveys are carried out by NatCen Social Research.
NatCen Social Research launched the latest British Social Attitudes Report in June 2017. More about the report at British Social Attitudes 35. The 2017 dataset has now been added to this site.

Registration and site customisation
NatCen are introducing a subscription for BritSocAt users from commercial organisations and are asking all such users to re-register the next time that they sign in. If you are from a non-commercial organisation (a university, charity, not-for-profit organisation, or a personal user) then you can continue to use the site as normal.
For commercial organisations, the subscription fee is £500 per year. It is a flat fee per organisation, rather than per user. All of this fee will either go back into the running of the website or the survey itself. After registering as a commercial organisation you will receive an invoice from NatCen Social Research.
If you have any queries about these new arrangements, please contact NatCen directly at Leigh.Marshall@natcen.ac.uk.
Registration is straightforward and provides immediate access. Users may choose between:
- standard access designed to meet the needs of most site visitors, or
- advanced access which allows users to customise the facilities they need to best suit their research.
To register now, click here. Registered users may customise and update their account options through the my account link in the top menu bar.
