Researchers interested in using longitudinal data will get a a well-rounded introduction to four of the UK’s largest studies followed by hands-on data analysis exercises.

The UK is particularly well-resourced in terms of longitudinal studies. The 1946, 1958, 1970 and Millennium cohorts provide a series of rich resources for understanding the physical, cognitive, social and economic development of four different generations.

The day includes both taught and hands–on activities covering:

  • survey design, data coverage and methodology of the studies
  • patterns of attrition
  • how to find and access data
  • an opportunity to carry out SPSS or Stata analysis using subsets of data

This event is jointly organised and delivered by the UK Data Archive at the University of Essex and the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) at the Institute of Education, University of London.

Location: 2N2.4.16 and 2N2.4.02 Essex Lab
