Access the Archive of Market and Social Research

This is the repository of all our material – in searchable digital format. Here you can find a wealth of reports, published papers, journals, books and newsletters on UK market and social research over the last 90 or more years. It includes research studies, survey results, technical developments, state-of-the-art reviews, biographical details and key historical documents. Many of these have never been publicly available before, due to commercial confidentiality or membership-only circulation. The focus is mainly on British publications, but material from other countries is included where appropriate. New material is constantly being added.

The Archive should be useful to anyone who wants to explore the history of market or social research or the history of British social attitudes, consumer behaviour and political opinion using the documents of the day. It may also be useful to current research practitioners, both users and suppliers, and to media organisations.
