The National Survey for Wales is a study of adults across the whole of Wales.

About the survey

Each year, a representative sample of 14,500 people across Wales take part in the survey. The results are used by the Welsh Government to help make Wales a better place to live. They help to:

  • make decisions that are based on sound evidence
  • monitor changes over time
  • identify areas of good practice that can be implemented more widely
  • identify areas or groups that would benefit from intensive local support, so action can be targeted as effectively as possible.

The survey covers a range of topics with a focus on well being and people’s views on public services. The topics change slightly each year; further details on topics can be found in 'Background information/More in this section/Content and materials'.
