Geographies and ecological variables in the Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS) – new working paper

A new Technical Working Paper for the SLS has just been published, discussing the different levels of geographies available in the study.  Geographical data are an integral part of the SLS, with the data coded onto a number of different geographies including census, health and other administrative areas at a range of spatial scales.  Geographies and ecological variables are essential not only for research on migration, but also for research on impacts of environmental and socio-economic contexts on individuals well-being.  This new working paper provides an introduction to the geographical identifiers and ecological variables in the SLS.
