The Citizenship Survey (known in the field as the Communities Study) commenced on a biennial basis in 2001 (the second survey was conducted in 2003, the third in 2005 and the current wave in 2007-2008). The survey provided an evidence base for the work of Communities and Local Government (formerly the Department for Communities and Local Government), principally on the issues of community cohesion, community engagement, race and faith, volunteering and civil renewal. It was also us ed extensively for developing policy and for performance measurement. The survey was also used more widely, by other government departments and external stakeholders, to help inform their work around the issues covered in the survey. The survey moved to a continuous design in 2007, which means that data became available on a quarterly basis for that survey from April 2007. Once collection for the four quarters was completed, a full aggregated dataset was made available, and the larger sample size allows more detailed analysis. The Citizenship Survey was first conducted by the Home Office (whose remit formerly included the topics covered in the survey), and was then known as the Home Office Citizenship Survey (HOCS) before responsibility moved to the Communities and Local Government department (CLG, now the Department for Communities and Local Government, or DCLG) in May 2006. The HOCS acronym may still be in use for earlier waves of the survey. Further information about the survey, including l inks to publications, can be found on the DCLG Citizenship Survey web pages. January 2011: cancellation of the Citizenship Survey The DCLG has announced that the Citizenship Survey has been cancelled. Fieldwork will conclude on 31 March 2011, followed by publication of reports in the months after analysis of that data. Further information about the survey closure may be found on the DCLG website at http://www.communities.gov.uk/communities/research/citizenshipsurvey/surveycancellation/.
