British Household Panel Survey; Waves 1-13, 1991-2004
12 Apr 2005
The British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) is being carried out by the Institute for Social and Economic Research (incorporating the ESRC Research Centre on Micro-social Change) at the University of Essex. The main objective of the survey is to further our understanding of social and economic change at the individual and household level in Britain, to identify, model and forecast such changes, their causes and consequences in relation to a range of socio-economic variables. The BHPS is designed as a research resource for a wide range of social science disciplines and to support interdisciplinary research in many areas.
