The Skills and Employment Survey collects data on what people do at work, what skills they use and how they work. The 2022 survey is the eighth in a series of studies which began in 1986. These cross-sectional surveys provide the means to chart and explain the changing pattern of job quality and skills over time. The series is a crucial part of the social science research infrastructure which has provided the basis forĀ many publications.
