Our ageing population

Welcome to Insights, a podcast from Understanding Society. The study that captures life in the UK in the 21st century, Understanding Society is a longitudinal survey. Every year we ask each member of thousands of the same households across the UK about different aspects of their lives.

In each episode of this series, we're exploring how our data has been used in a key area. We'll look at what we found, what it tells us and what we can learn from it. In this episode, we're discussing how the experience of ageing in England and other parts of the UK is changing, and for many worsening. Our guests this week are Dr. Matt Barnes, senior lecturer in sociology at City University London, Jemma Mouland, Deputy Director for Research Impact and Voice at the Centre for Ageing better, and Stephen Pudney, professor of econometrics at the University of Sheffield, and Understanding Society's topic champion for ageing and social policy.
