Data Discovery Workshop: The UK Cohort Studies

29th September 2011 to 30th September 2011

Data Discovery Workshop: The UK Cohort Studies delivered as part of the Society for Longitudinal and Life Course Studies conference, Bielefeld, Germany.

The workshop is intended to give an insight into both the potential and the practicalities of analysing one or more of the cohorts for those potentially interested in working with these studies. It will thus cover aspects such as weighting, sample attrition, data harmonisation, data enhancements, and analytical strategies, as well as providing an overview of substantive content within and across the cohort studies. It will employ illustrations taken from existing research.

By the end of the session, participants will have a good understanding of the strengths – and limits – of the British cohort studies. They will have a grasp of possibilities for analysis within individual cohorts and across them. They will also be advised about access to the data, and given information on where to find additional information and resources relevant to the cohorts.
