The Taking Part survey contract was renewed in May 2008 to extend the survey until 2010-11. Fieldwork under the new contract began in July.
The estimated cost across the three-year period (2008-09 to 2010-11) is £5.5 million. In addition to supporting core running costs of the survey, this total includes other costs such as additional analysis, piloting and questionnaire reviews.
The participating non-departmental public bodies make the following proportionate contributions to the total cost:
