Workshop: Longitudinal data across the life course: an introduction to using cohort data
Date & time: 17 May 2019 / 10:30 – 14:00
About the workshop
Longitudinal data are a powerful resource for addressing a wide range of scientific questions in various social, health, political and geographical sciences.
For example, what determines health across life? How has social mobility changed? What determines voting preferences?
This workshop will give both first-time and more experienced data users an insight into four of the UK’s internationally-renowned cohort studies run by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS):
Delegates will be given an introduction to each of the cohort studies as well as further information on how to access and use them. There will also be updates about recent developments in each of the studies, including upcoming new data releases.
The session will feature guest speakers who will discuss their use of cohort data across a range of topics (speakers and topics to be confirmed).
Delegates will also have the opportunity to discuss their own research ideas, gain advice and ask questions over a networking lunch.
The workshop will be run by staff from CLS, which is based at the Department of Social Science, UCL Institute of Education.
