Other information: Extract:
In this guide we introduce the UK census-based Longitudinal Studies (LSs) and highlight their potential for research on health and health inequalities. We provide practical guidelines on how to access the data, the health information and correlates of health that are available in each LS and we explain why the LSs are such an important resource for health researchers.
The core of the guide focuses on 4 case studies that highlight the latest research on health using the longitudinal studies across the UK. These case studies cover a diverse set of substantive research themes including the effect of migration on spatial health inequalities in the UK and the impact of childhood disability on educational outcomes.
