UK Longitudinal Studies Roadshow – Cardiff
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 successful 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 embrace all three of the Longitudinal Studies, with talks by academics who have used the data for their own research:
- Dr Saffron Karlsen (Univ of Bristol) “Ethnic differences in intragenerational social mobility between 1971 and 2011″
- Dr Stefanie Doebler (Queens Univ Belfast) “Are Informal Caregivers in Northern Ireland more likely to suffer from Anxiety and Depression? A Northern Ireland Longitudinal (NILS) Data Linkage-Study”
- Dr Richard Silverwood (LSHTM) “Pathways between socioeconomic disadvantage and growth in the Scottish Longitudinal Study, 1991-2001”
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.
