Since 2001, the Citizenship Survey (formerly known as the Home Office Citizenship Survey, or HOCS) has been commissioned every two years. Approximately 10,000 adults in England and Wales (plus an additional boost sample of 5,000 adults from minority ethnic groups) are asked questions covering a wide range of issues, including race equality, faith, feelings about their community, volunteering and participation. In 2003 there were supplementary booster samples of children (eight and nine-year-olds), young people (10 to 15-year-olds), and 20 local areas.
