UK Longitudinal Studies Centre

The UK Longitudinal Studies Centre (ULSC) was established by the Economic and Social Research Council in 1999 and is the national resource centre for promoting longitudinal research and for the design, management and support of longitudinal surveys.

The British Household Panel Survey, run by the Centre at the Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) since 1991, is one of the most widely used data sets in the world.  Its successor, Understanding Society is a unique and valuable academic study that captures important information every year about the social and economic circumstances and attitudes of people living in 40,000 UK households.

ULSC's highly specialised team of experts ensure the collection of longitudinal data of the highest quality to meet UK social research needs and to promote its widest and most effective use.
