This paper presents some preliminary findings from Wave 5 of the Innovation Panel (IP5) of Understanding Society: The UK Household Longitudinal Study. Understanding Society is a major panel survey in the UK. In February 2012, the fifth wave of the Innovation Panel went into the field. IP5 used a mixed-mode design, using on-line interviews and face-to-face interviews. This paper describes the design of IP5, the experiments carried and the preliminary findings from early analysis of the data.
