Details

The aim of the project was to improve the current ‘barriers’ questions so that they collect more insightful data about respondents’ reasons for non-engagement.

The main objectives of this project were:

  • to understand how people think about their behaviour and their reasons for non-engagement
  • to identify whether different barriers exist for different sub-groups of the population, and what these are
  • to design and test survey questions that reflect the findings from this research
  • to recommend a new set of questions for the 2010 to 2011 survey which address the reasons for non-participation
