An intergenerational audit for the UK


Our Intergenerational audit for the UK, supported by the Nuffield Foundation, takes stock of generational living standards differences in Britain according to the latest data. It does this by considering living standards within four domains:

  • Jobs, skills and pay
  • Housing costs and security
  • Taxes, benefits and household income
  • Wealth and assets.

In each of these domains, we first assess the different paths of cohort living standards, with a particular focus on the drivers of change over the most recent couple of years. We then zero in on one area where we dig deeper – providing novel ‘spotlight’ analysis that seeks to stay on the pulse of what’s changing in Britain today, and move research and policy debates forward accordingly.
