British Household Panel Survey

British Household Panel Survey

The British Household Panel Survey (BHPS), carried out at the Institute for Social and Economic Research of the University of Essex, is an instrument for social and economic research. A sample of British households was drawn and first interviewed in 1991. The members of these original holdholds have since been followed and annually interviewed. The resulting data base is very popular among social scientists for quantitative analyses of social and economic change. One of the most important precursors of the BHPS is the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), established in the 60s at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (USA).

As a panel survey it is a form of longitudinal study.

From 2008, the BHPS will be integrated into the UKHLS.

BHPS data are integrated into the European Community Household Panel and the Cross National Equivalent File (CNEF) which contains panel data from Australia, Canada, Germany, Great Britain and the United States.
