The RSA commissioned a survey to get a wider sense of experiences of economic security, which is defined as ‘the degree of confidence that a person can have in maintaining a decent quality of life, now and in future, given their economic and financial circumstances.’

Respondents were grouped into segments based on the similarity of their characteristics and attitudes, as measured by survey responses. The segmentation helped to identify patterns in experiences of economic security and work, which are ultimately expressed as the seven portraits of the modern workforce presented here.
