Welcome to our latest edition of Ipsos Public Affairs' Understanding Society. In this edition we look at what will affect and shape the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, with a range of articles covering health, economy, society and the environment.
This edition takes advantage of the wealth of research that Ipsos Public Affairs has produced throughout the COVID-19 pandemic with results from our research peppered throughout the articles, as well as research run by our UK KnowledgePanel, a new product for us this year, providing the gold standard of research, allowing us to dive deeper into different groups that make up British Society.
If you're particularly interested in any of the data or information in this edition please do contact the authors directly or use the form at the bottom of this webpage and the right person will get in touch with you.
The COVID-19 pandemic is not finished but as we all begin to think about Britain's recovery from the pandemic, understanding the variety of issues which will impact on that recovery is critical.
