Title
ESRC Poverty and Social Exclusion - Working Paper Analysis Series No. 4 Are Minimum Standards becoming less generous; attitudes to Necessities in the PSE Omnibus 2012 Survey
Description
This working paper reports the findings from the 2012 Omnibus Survey of UK module on attitudes to necessities conducted as part of the ESRC Poverty and Social Exclusion research. It describes and discusses the items and activities that are necessary for an acceptable standard of living in the UK for adults and children in 2012 according to the views of the adult population and examines the degree to which there is a consensus among different groups as to what is a necessity. This survey updates previous surveys undertaken in 1983, 1990, and 1999 in Great Britain and 2002/3 in Northern Ireland. This enables changes in people’s perceptions of what is a necessity to be tracked over the last thirty years. The paper examines whether in the more constrained economic conditions of 2012 people had become less generous than in the past and if so why.
