An intergenerational audit for the UK


Our third Intergenerational Audit – supported by the Nuffield Foundation – provides an analysis of economic living standards across generations in Britain. In so doing, it analyses the latest data across four domains:

  • Jobs, skills and pay
  • Housing costs and security
  • Taxes, benefits and household incomes
  • Wealth and assets

In each of these domains, we assess how different birth cohorts have fared at different stages of their lives. We also provide four in-depth ‘spotlight’ analyses of specific issues, in order to move policy debates forward. Although much of our Intergenerational Centre’s work focuses on changes and differences between generations over the longer term, this year’s Audit also zeros in on shorter-term changes: analysing how the second year of the Covid-19 pandemic has brought new challenges to different age groups.
