Briefing Notes

Briefing Note 107 - Is State Pension knowledge too low for informed financial decisions?

The NatCen Panel is a probability-based research panel in Great Britain open to be used by the social research community. It currently consists of approximately 6,000 panellists aged 18+ recruited from the British Social Attitudes survey. Panellists are invited to take part in surveys online or on the phone approximately once every one to two months.

The data on attitudes in this Briefing Note is drawn from the November 2017 NatCen Panel survey data in which a few extra pension questions were asked.

This Briefing Note looks at social attitudes about the State Pension and discusses why people might feel the way they do and what attitudes might mean for behaviour going forward.
