Introductory workshop on the Millennium Cohort Study: MCS4

24th May 2011 to 25th May 2011

On Tuesday 24 May 2011 the CLS will be holding a one-day introductory workshop on the Millennium Cohort Study: MCS4, focusing on the data from the survey carried out when the study children were aged seven years.

This event is designed for new and intending users of data from the study and is jointly organised by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) at the Institute of Education and the Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS). It will be held at the Institute of Education in London.

The taught component includes presentations on the MCS survey; the MCS sample and issues of weights, response, non-response and attrition; and how to access data.

The hands-on component will cover a range of topics, including: linking data from all four sweeps; recoding variables; deriving new variables; examining frequencies and percentages; correlation and regression; how issues of weighting affect results; how to measure attrition and the implications this may have for research.

Cost

There is a non-refundable charge of £60 (£30 for HE students) for attending, which includes lunch and workshop documentation.
