About BHPS

The main objective of the BHPS was to further our understanding of social and economic change at the individual and household level in Britain and the UK.

The BHPS is a research resource for a wide range of social science disciplines and supports interdisciplinary research in many subject areas.

The BHPS was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. By 2009, a total of 18 years of panel data had been collected, making the BHPS one of the longest running panel surveys in the world.
