16 Jul 2014
This paper presents some preliminary findings from Wave 6 of the Innovation Panel (IP6) of
Understanding Society: The UK Household Longitudinal Study. Understanding Society is a
major panel survey in the UK. In March 2013, the sixth wave of the Innovation Panel went into
the field. IP6 used a mixed-mode design, using on-line interviews and face-to-face interviews.
This paper describes the design of IP6, the experiments carried and the preliminary findings
from early analysis of the data.
