Abstract

This report presents the full findings from an in-depth qualitative research project undertaken by Research Works Ltd in 2009. The research was commissioned as part of the Department of Health’s (DH) Healthy Foundations Programme which has developed a segmentation of the adult population of England based on behaviour, attitudes and lifestyle. As with all good segmentations, the Healthy Foundations Programme provides a powerful tool in understanding subgroups of the population and focusing resources where they are most needed. Segmentation approaches which go beyond demographics and factor in attitudinal and psychographic data (a person’s overall approach to life, includ personality traits, values and beliefs) produce a more rounded picture of individuals and are a good starting point for developing tailored interventions.
