Abstract

This paper presents some preliminary findings from the Wave 3 Innovation Panel (IP3) of Understanding Society: The UK Household Longitudinal Study. Understanding Society is a major new panel survey for the UK. In April 2010, the third wave of the Innovation Panel was fielded. This paper describes the design of IP3, the experiments carried and the preliminary findings from early analysis of the data. The main design features of Understanding Society are outlined and the design and conduct of IP3 described. The results of methodological experiments carried at IP3 are reported and the impact of IP3 on the design of the main survey is reviewed.
