This paper uses qualitative and quantitative data to examine perceptions of risk and household saving behaviour. It forms part of a broad program of research drawing together techniques from the applied economic and social-psychological literatures to build up a picture of individuals ’ saving experiences in the UK. In this paper we analyse existing household data and new qualitative data from a conventional economic standpoint, and examine the main themes and contradictions from these two sources of information. We highlight trends in the economic analysis of household surveys and discuss the extent to which these emerge as themes when groups of individuals discuss their saving behaviour
