This was the first nationally representative study in Britain to explore public attitudes to health inequalities and the social determinants of health. As well as containing quantitative research, the study contains the results of two qualitative deliberative workshops held in London and the north west of England. These workshops sought to explore views about the social determinants of health, equality, equity and responsibility for actions.

Key Conclusion

'In general Britain is a happy nation with optimism for the future. However there is a social gradient in both happiness and optimism, with people from high social grades more likely to expect more positive than negative future experiences.'
