New research from Aspect has revealed that plumbing is the UK’s most admired household skill. We conducted a nationally representative poll of 2,000 UK adults to find out how they perceived a range of household skills, from handyman skills to painting and decorating.
Study participants ranked those household skills from 0 to 10 in terms of how useful they believed those skills to be. Aspect’s study team then sorted those rankings by ‘overall usefulness’, which was the average score given by all participants. They then split the rankings by which skill received the highest share of 10 out of 10 rankings, to designate an ‘impressiveness’ score. These are the skills people admired the most.
