Abstract

This paper describes the design of the sample for Understanding Society. The sample consists of five components. The largest component is a newly-selected general population sample. The other four components are an ethnic minority boost sample, a general population comparison sample, the ex-BHPS (British Household Panel Survey) sample, and the innovation panel sample. For each component, the paper outlines the design and explains the rationale behind the main features of the design.
