Feel Good Test

What is this project about, and do I have to take part?

We know that taking part in community and cultural activities can be good for wellbeing. This project aims to find out what activities people take part in, and why.

It is completely up to you to decide whether or not to take part.

What will happen to the information I give you?

Your responses – without any personally identifying details such as your email address– will be passed to researchers working on this project at University College London (UCL). Your data won’t be passed on to anyone else.

Who will be able to access my data?

Only the researchers working on this project at UCL will have access to this anonymised data.

How long will my data be stored for?

Your anonymised data will be uploaded to a UK data archive for researchers to access. It will also be stored for ten years by UCL after the end of the research, at this point the data will be reviewed, and may be retained for longer. Again, this will only ever be anonymised data. 

It will not be possible to remove your information from existing data sets once those data sets have been anonymised, because even we would be unable to identify your data.

How do I find out the results of the experiment?

Researchers at UCL will make the results public as soon as is practical. Typically, this will be several months after the experiment has been launched. This delay allows sufficient data to be gathered, for analysis of data by scientific partners to be conducted thoroughly, and for any findings to be subjected to peer-review.

The results of the experiments will also be submitted for publication in peer-reviewed journals.
