Are you interested in research on family finances? Do you want to know the latest developments in family finance data from UK social surveys?
The annual Family Finance Surveys User Conference features updates from producers of the key UK surveys on family finances and research presentations based on analyses of the data.
Organised by the UK Data Service in collaboration with the Department for Work and Pensions and the Office for National Statistics, this one-day event will be held online and is free to attend.
The surveys include the Family Resources Survey and Households Below Average Income, Living Costs and Food Survey, Wealth and Assets Survey and Understanding Society.
