The State of the State brings together quantitative and qualitative research to create an evidence-led view of the UK public sector.
Our quantitative research comprises a survey of public attitudes delivered by Ipsos UK, who conducted an online survey of 5,813 UK adults aged 16-75 between 2 and 20 September 2022.
Our qualitative research comprises interviews with 53 public sector leaders including elected representatives, permanent secretaries and other senior civil servants, police leaders including chief constables, council chief executives, NHS trust chief executives and more. Those interviews were conducted between July and October 2022.
The views of interviewees quoted in this report are their own and not the views of Deloitte or Reform.
