UK Longitudinal Studies Roadshow – Aberdeen

The UK Census-based Longitudinal Studies – the Northern Ireland Longitudinal Study (NILS), Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS) and ONS Longitudinal Study of England and Wales (ONS LS) – are rich research resources. Combining census and administrative data, they allow longitudinal follow-up for up to 40 years with a uniquely powerful sample size allowing analysis to a finer-grained level than is possible with most other datasets. Research to date has covered economics, housing policy, social mobility, family dynamics, ethnic identity, health outcomes, demographics, education, migration, NEETs and much much more.

This event forms part of a series of Roadshow events across Scotland, England and Wales. Come along to hear examples of the many types of research that the LSs can be used for, to find out more about their potential and learn how you can access them.

This event will focus primarily on the Scottish Longitudinal Study, with talks by academics who have used the data for their own research:

The second part of the afternoon will give a broad overview of the UK LSs and their potential for your research. There will also be an opportunity to speak to representatives of all 3 studies.
