Summary

Survey details

The Poverty and Social Exclusion study is based on two surveys conducted in 2012.

Necessities of Life survey

The Necessities of Life survey was carried out between May and June 2012 and is based on a random sample of 1,447 adults aged 16 or over in Britain and 1,015 in Northern Ireland. The response rate was 51% in Britain and 53% in Northern Ireland. The survey was carried out by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) in Britain and by the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) in Northern Ireland as part of their Omnibus surveys. The full Necessities of life questionnaire can be downloaded from the PSE website at: http://www.poverty.ac.uk/pse-research/questionnaires

Living Standards survey

The Living Standards survey was carried out between March and December 2012 by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) in Britain and by the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) in Northern Ireland. The survey re-interviewed respondents to the 2010/11 Family Resources Survey (FRS) who said they could be contacted again. Every adult living at each address was interviewed.

The sampling frame was designed so as to give a minimum sample in Britain of 4,220 households (including 1,000 households in Scotland overall and an additional 220 households in rural Scotland) and a minimum sample in Northern Ireland of 1,000 households. Both low income and ethnic minority respondents were oversampled. The final sample size achieved was 5,193 households (4,205 in Britain and 988 in Northern Ireland) in which 12,097 people were living (9,786 in Britain and 2,311 in Northern Ireland). The response rate was 63% in Britain and 61% in Northern Ireland.
