Social science

The FSA is committed to making sure that understanding of what people throughout the food chain think, feel and do informs our risk management and communication. Understanding the FSA’s impact on the world around us is also important, and the data gathered through our work helps us demonstrate our performance and to be accountable to the FSA Board and the UK public. We publish reports and data  from all our social science research.
