Centre for Longitudinal Studies, Institute of Education, London
This one-day workshop organised by the Economic and Social Data Service introduces British individual-level data ('microdata') that are available for re-analysis. The focus will be on data from surveys and the Census, with a particular emphasis on the English Housing Survey.
The day is aimed at those with little or no experience of the data. Participants will learn about the data available and their research potential, how to access data and where to go for help. There will also be a hands-on session to explore the English Housing Survey data online and in SPSS. Presenters are drawn from the Department of Communities and Local Government, Economic and Social Data Service, ESRC Census Programme and Centre for Longitudinal Studies.
This is one of a series of events being held in support of the ESRC's Secondary Data Analysis Initiative.
The workshop is free to attend and lunch will be provided. To view the programme and book a place please go to http://www.ccsr.ac.uk/esds/events/2012-03-26/
