About the webinar
This webinar is for those who want to do research on ethnicity and migration related issues and are particularly interested in longitudinal analysis.
This webinar will focus on two longitudinal surveys in UK, Understanding Society and the Millennium Cohort Study, which are particularly suited for this purpose.
This webinar will (i) give an overview of the two surveys and the special features that allow longitudinal research on ethnicity and migration issues (ii) discuss some key research on these topics using these datasets.
The first 40 minutes will be a presentation by Professor Emla Fitzsimons (UCL) and Dr. Alita Nandi (ISER, University of Essex) followed by 20 minutes of Q&A.
The webinar series is the result of a collaboration between a number of ESRC-funded resource centres working together to promote the value and use of social science data. The collaboration is made up of several organisations including: CeLSIUS, NILS_RSU, SLS-DSU, CLOSER, Understanding Society, the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS), the UK Data Service, the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM), and the three ESRC funded big data centres; the Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC), the ESRC Business and Local Government Data Research Centre (BLG) and Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC).
This session is jointly organised by Understanding Society and the Centre for Longitudinal Studies as part of the ESRC funded data resource’s collaborative webinar series, ESRC data resources: discovering data and how to use it.
