Description

I can see you ask about satisfaction with life overall and about friends and social networks - are these the only wellbeing questions you are asking?
I have recently found about 'The Short Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale' (SWEMWBS) and I wondered if you are using these items in your survey or plan to in the future?
You have a section for neighbourhood with with no question - is that a gap at the moment?
Do you have any background information regarding the environment questions (leaving tap running and TV on standby) - did you do some research that suggested these were good indicators of environmental attitudes?
Also, do you produce statistical releases in the form of spreadsheets and do you have a large enough sample size for us to have information at county-level?

We carry a range of (mental) health/well-being measures, such as GHQ, SF12, a set of life satisfaction questions, subjective financial well-being, a social support module and the (long) Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale. Some every wave, others are rotated as indicated in the long-term content plan

You have a section for neighbourhood with with no question - is that a gap at the moment?

We support neighbourhood research with lookup tables to small area geographies. Please see this FAQ for further info https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/support/projects/support/wiki/Is_it_possible_to_merge_in_data_on_geographical_identifiers_eg_Census_information
We also carry questions about the local neighbourhood (perceptions of crime, local services, attachment and neighbourhood quality, etc.). Please provide a link to the page with the gap.

Do you have any background information regarding the environment questions (leaving tap running and TV on standby) - did you do some research that suggested these were good indicators of environmental attitudes?

The source of these questions is a questionnaire developed by DEFRA (see Source in the variable level documentation). We do consult academic researchers and policy makers regarding on questionnaire content. More can be found on this in the online introduction section to the study.

Also, do you produce statistical releases in the form of spreadsheets and do you have a large enough sample size for us to have information at county-level?

We only release the micro-data. Special Licence applications for geographical lookup tables are considered individually and questions about size and representativeness are taken into account (see FAQ under the second question). Urban-rural classifications and/or neighbourhood classifications can be alternative ways to analyse our data.

I hope this answers all - if not let me know.
