An analysis of people accessing our ‘CES Briefings’ shows that over the 5-year period from 2014-2018, the 66 pdfs were downloaded a total of 266,000 times – note that these were not ‘hits’ but actual successful downloads of whole pdfs.

The single most downloaded briefing was no. 35 ‘Does Education Promote Social Mobility?’ by Cristina Iannelli and Lindsay Paterson, at over 53,000.  CES Briefings summarise our key research findings, generally over 4 pages, and have been published since 1995, first in printed form, more recently as pdf files.  Files were downloaded at all times of the day, and days of the week, from 117 countries around the world.
