This is the first national survey of prejudice in Britain for over a decade.

It measures prejudice and discrimination experienced by people with a wide range of protected characteristics.

The aim of this report is to demonstrate the value of using a national survey of this type to measure people’s experiences of prejudice in Britain, as well as people’s attitudes towards others. It also aims to set a benchmark for future surveys.

The research was designed by Professor Dominic Abrams and Dr Hannah Swift from the Centre for the Study of Group Processes, University of Kent, and Professor Diane Houston from Birkbeck, University of London.

It was conducted by the National Centre for Social Research.
