About our statutory review

Our statutory review, formerly known as Is Britain Fairer?, is our most comprehensive report on how Britain is performing on equality and human rights.

Published every five years, it provides insights across all nine protected characteristics, to show how far Britain has come in creating a fair and equal society for all and what should be done to address inequality over the next five year period.

Our last report was published in 2018. 

Our next report will be published in 2023.

Call for evidence

To help fill gaps in the data available, we are looking for expert organisations and individuals across the protected characteristics to share their own research across a range of topics.

We are particularly interested in data and evidence that show:

  • trends over time, or differences between protected characteristics
  • the intersection of protected characteristics

The research should be high quality and robust, such as studies which are generalisable to a wider population or peer reviewed.

The statutory review reports will be divided by Britain, Scotland and Wales. We have created separate documents outlining the information gaps across the nations, which are available below:
