Abstract: The General Household Survey is a continuous national survey of people living in private households conducted on an annual basis, by the Social Survey Division of the Office for National Statistics. It is a multi-purpose survey, carried out for a number of government departments. It provides information for planning and policy purposes, covering aspects of housing, employment, education, health and social services, transport, population and social security. It is a continuous survey based on an achieved sample of about 9,000 households per year. A household questionnaire is completed by the householder or spouse, and an individual questionnaire by all adults aged 16 years and over in the household.
