The ONS Omnibus Survey, also known as Omnibus, is a regular, multi-purpose survey which in recent years has gone into the field in eight months of the year. It started operating commercially in 1990. It was set up originally to meet the needs of government departments for a survey that used short and simple sets of questions, had greater statistical reliability than private sector omnibus surveys and a properly designed random sample. Now, however, an increasing number of academics are fi nding it a valuable research tool. The Omnibus is used for a number of purposes, for example: to provide quick answers to questions of immediate interest to provide information on topics that do not require a full survey to develop and pilot questions for other surveys to sift for subgroups that can be followed up in another survey Main Topics: Each month's questionnaire consists of two elements: core questions, covering demographic informat ion, are asked each month together with non-core questions that vary from month to month. The non-core questions for these two months were: Tobacco consumption (Module 210): this module was asked on behalf of the Department of Customs and Excise to help estimate the amount of tobacco consumed as cigarettes.
