Data Dictionary Guidance

We are very pleased to announce the new version of our new data dictionary interface! This new improved system contains full variable information across all three LSs, advanced search options, plus the ability to save your own variable lists between sessions and download them for use when completing your application form.

The new dictionary also contains ‘similarity scores’ to help researchers wishing to use more than one LS for their project. At present these scores are available for 2001, and other census points will be added as the work progresses.

Please tell us your thoughts on the new interface and any suggestions or requests you would like us to consider.

You can find assistance with aspects of the Data Dictionary in the following pages:
