The British Social Attitudes survey series is carried out by Britain's largest independent social research institute, the National Centre for Social Research. It provides an indispensable guide to current political and social issues in contemporary Britain.

- Work-life balance

The most comprehensive review of changing British social values available, the British Social Attitudes survey report is an essential reading for anyone seeking a guide to the topical issues and debates of today or engaged in contemporary social and political research.
