This webinar is jointly organised by the UK Data Service and CeLSIUS as part of the ESRC-funded data resources’ collaborative webinar series, ESRC data resources: discovering data and how to use it.

The session will explore:

  • The range of longitudinal data on education available from the UK Data Service, including harmonised data, such as ‘Understanding Society: Waves 1-8, 2009-2017′ and ‘Harmonised BHPS: Waves 1-18, 1991-2009‘
  • The ONS Longitudinal Study, including the data structure, available research topics (with a focus on education) and procedures for access. Some results will be  presented on how education relates to economic activity status through the life-course in a historical sample of young men and women
  • The value of using of longitudinal data for educational research purposes: case studies

The first 45 minutes of the webinar will be devoted to presentations from Beate Lichtwardt (UK Data Service) and Wei Xun (CeLSIUS), followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
