Help improve the way we ask questions in our surveys

NOTE: This study has now ended and we are no longer looking for recruits. Thanks to those who participated.

This blog post is written by Andrew Phelps from our Social Surveys Transformation team.

At the Office for National Statistics (ONS) we collect data by asking people like you to take part in our studies. To make sure we are asking questions in the right way, we need people to test them.

This study involves a short online questionnaire, and a five-minute follow-up telephone interview a week or so later.

If you are selected for both the online and telephone parts, we will send you £30 in High Street shopping vouchers, as a thank you for taking part in this study.

Who are we looking for?

We are keen to speak to people living in households in the United Kingdom where:

a. three or more unrelated adults live together

b. a family has unrelated person(s) living with them

c. someone lives away during term time for study

d. someone lives away for work

e. someone who lives there has more than one family home (for example, children with parents who live at different addresses)

We are not looking to hear from people living in halls of residence or care homes.

If your household fits into any of these groups, please get in touch by sending an email to Tell us your name, a contact telephone number and which group or groups you fit into.

Only one person in the household aged 18+ can take part.
