Abstract

Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.
 
Description Understanding Society is an infrastructure project; thousands of users from academia, government, third sector and commercial organisations have downloaded the data and a wide range of publications have been produced, covering genetics to poverty, politics to intergenerational transmission of wealth, health behaviours to commuting, environmental behaviours to survey methods, employment and education to family change, harassment and discrimination to health and disability, expenditure to gender roles and attitudes. Research based on the data not only contributes to scientific knowledge, but also policy development and monitoring among statutory and third sector agencies. Specifically, under this award, Understanding Society was funded to produce genome wide sequence data and a range of biomarkers. These data are increasingly being used in social sciences and have expanded the study's user base to clinical and biological disciplines. Understanding Society is a continuous ongoing project, see information under subsequent awards.
Exploitation Route The data from the study is already being used by a wide range of other researchers, and is the basis of a wide range of under and post graduate taught courses, used by a significant number of PhD and other students, and used in a wide range of short statistical courses. A key feature of this award was the enhancement funds to create a biosocial resource. Blood analyte data are now available under EUL in UKDS, genome wide scan and epigenetic data are at EGA and the METADAC oversees access to combine genotype-phenotype data. It is early days but these data are beginning to become widely known and used. Evidence based on our and others' analysis of the data are being used to progress scientific knowledge, improve the design of other surveys, and to inform policy and practice. Researchers do not necessarily inform us of their publications or impact. We therefore do not know of all the ways they use the data.

Description Data from Understanding Society are directly used by a number of Government Departments for policy monitoring, policy development and evaluation. . For example, the Welsh Government has a legal requirement to report on child wellbeing as a part of The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, for which it employs Understanding Society. In addition, the Scottish Government uses environmental behaviour measures in Understanding Society in their regular reports as part of the Low Carbon Scotland: A behaviours Framework. Further, DWP uses Understanding Society data on children living with both parents as part of their family stability indicator in the Social Justice Outcomes Framework. DWP use the data from the Study in their income dynamics report, which is an offical statistic for them. The DWP will also use Understanding Society to monitor the progress of their 2017 policy designed to tackle the disadvantaged faces by workless families; two indicators (parental conflict and parental mental health) will use the Study. ONS use Understanding Society data in a wide range of their statutory monitoring reports. Evidence from Understanding Society has also been used in a wide range of Gov policy developments, from evidence to the Taylor review to the Airports Commission report on air capacity to DfE review of special educational needs to PHE work on youth smoking to mention a few. The Understanding Society Policy Unit work directly with Government cofunders to support their use of data in a wide range of ways on an ongoing basis. Understanding Society is also extensively used by the third sector, for example AgeUK produced a wellbeing index which it used to inform its own investments as well as promote issues about older people more generally. The Children's Society use it in their annual report on wellbeing. Understanding Society data is used in the Homelessness Monitor, a longitudinal study of homelessness across the UK (with separate reports for each devolved administration), funded by Crisis and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. Findings from the Homelessness Monitor England 2016, including findings on hidden homelessness from Understanding Society specifically, were included in a House of Commons Library (2016) briefing paper on the Homelessness Reduction Bill 2016-17. This Bill received Royal Assent and is now the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017. Data from the study is also used by academics to evaluate government policies in ways that may lead to their reassessment. Recent evaluations included benefits for those out of work due to illness, national minimum wage, introduction of plastic bag charges, and neighbourhood renewal. Methodological research from the study informs the design of a wide range of other surveys internationally, including those by governments. For example, we recently advised ONS on their plans going forward. Researchers do not necessarily inform us of their publications or impact. We therefore do not know how much evidence of impact we capture. Understanding Society is an ongoing continuous project please see subsequent awards for more details.

Title Understanding Society: Innovation Panel, Waves 1-8, 2008-2015 
Description The Innovation Panel is designed for experimental and methodological research relevant to longitudinal surveys. As far as practical its design, content, and data collection procedures are similar to the main stage Understanding Society survey. It is a multi-topic household survey representative of the population of Great Britain. Data collection takes place annually using computer assisted personal interviewing (CAPI) and computer assisted web interviewing (CAWI). One person completes the household questionnaire. Each person aged 16 or older answers the individual adult interview, including and self-completion questionnaire. Young people aged 10 to 15 years are asked to respond to a paper self-completion questionnaire. The Innovation Panel has multiple experimental studies in which households are randomly assigned to a particular instrument or survey procedure. Experiments can relate to survey procedures, questionnaire design, or substantive social science questions.

Title Understanding Society: Interviewer Survey 2014 
Description The Understanding Society Interviewer Survey 2014 data file is the result of a project that collected information from interviewers who worked on the Understanding Society data collection for Great Britain in the first round of interviews, which took place over the course of the years 2009 and 2010. One of the specific aims of the data collection was to better understand the nature of bias in respondent consent to data linkage and, in particular, the role of interviewers in obtaining consent and in affecting consent bias. Hence, the interviewer survey includes a number of questions eliciting interviewer attitudes to consent to data linkage and their experiences with asking for consent during the fieldwork. There are, however, also a great deal of questions that will be of interest to a greater audience of researchers, such as interviewer attitudes to persuasion, measures of their personality traits and markers of general trust.

Title Understanding Society: Waves 1-3, 2009-2012: Special Licence Access, Geographical Accessibility 
Description Understanding Society, the UK Household Longitudinal Study (UKHLS), UKHLS-Accessibility data file provides user-friendly access to information about access to eight domains of public services in the immediate areas in which study members live. The information has been sourced from the Department for Transport (DfT)'s Accessibility Statistics and offers more than 600 unique data items relating to how easy or difficult it is for different types of people in the local area to access employment and town centers, primary and secondary schools, institutions for further education, General Practitioners, hospitals, and food stores. The data file covers waves 1-3 of Understanding Society and has been deposited with the UK Data Service to allow greatest possible distribution. Researchers can apply to obtain access to the UKHLS-Accessibility data file under study's Special License policy. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Year Produced 2014

Title Understanding Society: Waves 1-5, 2009-2014 
Description Understanding Society (UK Household Longitudinal Study), which began in 2009, is conducted by the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER), at the University of Essex, and the survey research organisations are Kantar Public and NatCen. It builds on and incorporates, the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS), which began in 1991. The latest release combines the first seven waves of Understanding Society data with harmonised data from all eighteen waves of the BHPS. As multi-topic studies, the purpose of Understanding Society and BHPS is to understand short- and long-term effects of social and economic change in the UK at the household and individual levels. The study has a strong emphasis on domains of family and social ties, employment, education, financial resources, and health. Understanding Society is an annual survey of a nationally representative sample of persons of all ages. The same individuals are re-interviewed in each wave approximately 12 months apart, along with other current household members. When individuals move they are followed within the UK . The study has four sample components: the general population sample (GPS), a boost sample of ethnic minority group members, participants from the BHPS and the Innovation Panel (which is a separate standalone survey). The fieldwork period lasts 24 months for each wave. Data collection primarily uses computer assisted personal interviewing (CAPI), but includes a telephone mop up, and from Wave 7, web-based interviews. One person completes the household questionnaire. Each person aged 16 or older participates in the individual adult interview and self-completed questionnaire. Youths aged 10 to 15 are asked to respond to a paper self-completion questionnaire. For the GPS and BHPS samples biomarker, genetic and epigenetic data are also available.

Results and Impact Mixed modes are receiving increased interest from survey methodologists as a possible solution to saving costs while retaining high quality data. In recent years this interest has extended also to panel studies which are looking to save costs by including a cheaper mode for some of their respondents. The current presentation aims to tackle some of the issues linked to such a design. First, I aim to see if using a mixed mode design will increase systematic and random error compared to a single mode CAPI survey by applying equivalence testing in a Confirmatory Factor Analysis. Secondly, I aim to investigate if estimates of individual change are influenced by mode design by comparing latent growth models across the two designs. The first four waves of the Innovation Panel, part of Understanding Society (UKHLS), will be used for the analysis. The second wave of the data randomized respondents to either a single-mode CAPI design or to a CATI-CAPI sequential design. The SF12 health scale will be used to investigate both measurement equivalence and estimates of individual change.

Results and Impact Mixed modes (MM) are receiving increased interest as a possible solution for saving costs in panel surveys, although the lasting effects on data quality are unknown. To better understand the effects of MM on panel data I will examine its impact on random and systematic error and on estimates of change. The SF12, a health scale, in the Understanding Society Innovation Panel is used for the analysis. Results indicate that only one variable out of 12 has systematic differences due to MM. Also, three of the SF12 items overestimate variance of change in time in the MM design. I conclude that using a MM design leads to minor measurement differences but it can result in the overestimation of individual change compared to a single mode approach.

Description Is there a Healthy Immigrant Effect for mental health in the UK?

Primary Audience Other academic audiences (collaborators, peers etc.)
Results and Impact Background Evidence for a Healthy Immigrant Effect (HIE), whereby immigrants are in better health than the native-born population, has been found with respect to physical health in immigrants in the United Kingdom (UK) but has not been investigated for mental health. There is variation in mental health status across ethnic groups in the UK and the country's ethnic minority population includes UK-born people as well as first generation immigrants. This study examines whether there is a HIE for mental health of immigrants in the UK. It compares the overall immigrant population to the UK population and additionally compares immigrants and UK-natives within ethnic groups. Methods Cross-sectional study using data from the UK Household Longitudinal Study (2009-10) which oversamples some ethnic groups and has a sample of circa 46,000 adults aged 16+. Poor mental health outcomes are by a low score of SF-12 Mental Summary Component (MCS) and diagnosis of depression. Survey-weighted logistic regression models estimate the effect of migrant status and of length of residence (Years since migration). Interactions allow for differential effects by gender. Models adjust for age and socio-economic status (education, material deprivation index, housing tenure). Results (preliminary) Immigrants have lower odds of depression (OR 0.35, 95% CI 0.22-0.57) and of low MCS score (0.77, 0.62-0.94), compared to native born. For each year spent in the UK, immigrants have higher odds of poor mental health, compared to natives (depression: 1.03, 1.01-1.04; low MCS score 1.01, 1.00-1.02), meaning they lose their initial health advantage. Stratified models show similar patterns for immigrants among Caribbean men, black African, Pakistani/Bangladeshi and Indian, though not all statistically significant at 10% level. Conclusion Recent immigrants show better mental health than their UK-born counterparts, and this is partly also seen within ethnic groups. With increasing time since migration, the health advantage decreases. Conflicts: none

Results and Impact Using a rich, nationally representative data set with a large sample of minorities and matched small area characteristics, we explore differences in life satisfaction for ethnic groups living in England. We test the hypothesis that minorities will be less satisfied, which will in part be explained by less favourable individual and area contexts, but that living in areas with a larger proportion of own ethnic group promotes well-being. We find that satisfaction is lower among minorities, ceteris paribus, but area concentration is associated with higher life satisfaction for certain groups. We discuss the implications of our findings.

Description Non-contact and refusal among immigrants: Wave 2 attrition in Understanding Society

Primary Audience Other academic audiences (collaborators, peers etc.)
Results and Impact Immigrants, as ethnic minorities in general, have a higher risk of nonresponse in many household surveys (Watson and Wooden 2009, Feskens 2009). This poses a problem, especially when maintaining a panel that should offer large enough sample size for subgroup analysis. Little is known about the mechanisms leading to nonresponse or attrition of migrants. The large number of migrants in Understanding Society-both due to its large sample size and the Ethnic Minority Boost sample-allows investigating in how far factors commonly associated with attrition as well as characteristics specific to migrants help understand their response behaviour. Using data from waves 1 and 2 of Understanding Society, I analyse attrition amongst migrants in the second wave. The nonresponse process is understood as sequential, consisting of non-contact and, for those contacted, refusal and different factors can affect each of the two stages. I first model household non-contact at wave 2 and then, conditional on contact, refusal to the individual interview. Both models control for small-area characteristics and survey paradata such as whether the interviewer changed between waves. I find that household non-contact amongst migrants is, similar to that of the UK-born population, determined by factors relating to at-home patterns and residential mobility. Immigrants' propensity to refuse is influenced by factors relating to nonresponse theories about social exchange and civic duty, but also by their cultural background (proxied by their ethnicity and religion). Even after accounting for these characteristics attrition both at the contact stage and at the cooperation stage is related to time since arrival in the UK. These findings shed light on which factors are important for retaining migrant sample members in a longitudinal study and have implications for fieldwork practitioners.
