Impact on Society

Economic analysis impacts on everyday lives across all aspects of society from children to the elderly, disadvantaged and diverse communities. Our research influences and contributes to government white papers, policy debates and reports, as well as the work of NGOs, businesses and international organisations such as the World Bank and the UN. Impact from IFS research includes both direct and quantifiable economic benefits; impacts on government policy, the third sector and professional practice; and the wider social impacts such as effects on the environment, public health, the quality of our lives and our general wellbeing.

These case studies aim to give a flavour of the areas where IFS research might have an impact on society. Much of our research is funded by the Economics and Social Research Council, whose website shows some examples of impacts across the social sciences.
