Attitudes towards social security In his chapter on the 1983 British Social Attitudes survey, Bosanquet noted that the claiming and take-up of benefits generated strongly held opinions with substantial differences along party lines – for example, on questions about the adequacy of benefits and the amount of fraud (Bosanquet, 1984).

This shows that the age differential in attitudes towards public spending changed across all areas of spending in the period up to 1996. In the case of health care and old age pensions, support for higher spending fell among 18–34 year olds, but rose among other age groups. In the case of education and unemployment benefits, support for higher spending among the youngest age group either rose by less or fell by more than among older age groups.
