National Survey for Wales

Series abstract

The National Survey for Wales is carried out by the Office for National Statistics on behalf of the Welsh Government. The survey is a key source of information for the Welsh Government, other public sector organisations, and academics on the views and circumstances of people in Wales. It is carried out face-to-face with a random sample of over 10,000 adults a year. Starting with the National Survey for Wales 2016-17, the survey design covers the topics of five predecessor surveys and has therefore a longer interview than previous years. The predecessor surveys were: the first set of National Survey for Wales, which ran from 2012-15; the Welsh Health Survey; the Active Adults Survey; the Arts in Wales Survey and the Welsh Outdoor Recreation Survey.
