National Survey for Wales

Series abstract

The National Survey for Wales ran between 2012 and 2015.  It is a key source of information for the Welsh Government on the views and circumstances of people in Wales. Topics include public services, such as council, education, and health services; local area and safety; and well-being. It replaced the Living in Wales Survey, which ran from 2004 to 2008. 

An expanded version of the National Survey, beginning in 2016, will cover similar topics as well as a selection of topics from four other surveys.  These are the Welsh Health Survey, the Active Adults Survey, the Arts in Wales Survey, and the Welsh Outdoor Recreation Survey, all of which come to an end in 2014 or 2015.  The first results from the new survey will be published in June 2017 and available via the Data Archive shortly afterwards.
