Are you interested in learning more about census microdata and how they can be used in research? Have you considered using census data but are not sure what is available?
This free workshop will introduce you to the UK Data Service census microdata collection and the Scottish Longitudinal Study. Although the census microdata collection covers the UK as a whole, this workshop will have a special emphasis on the collection for Scotland.
Most of the census microdata can be accessed via download from the UK Data Service website, while the Scottish Longitudinal Study data can be accessed via safe settings and remote access from the Scottish Longitudinal Study Development and Support Unit.
This half-day session will introduce these data sources showing examples of how experienced researchers have used these data in their research. The workshop will include:
Entry (no or almost no prior knowledge)
