Hosted by the UK Data Service, this webinar will introduce the wide range of longitudinal datasets available at the organisation. This introductory webinar is intended for anyone who wants to learn about the wide range of longitudinal datasets available via the UK Data Service. The Service provides access to various types of longitudinal data. One of these are the British Birth Cohort Studies (e.g. the National Child Development Study 1958 and The Millennium Cohort Study) which follow the same group of children born in a specific year throughout their lives, tracking changes and unravelling the reasons behind them. Another type is the successor of BHPS, Understanding Society, an innovative and world-leading study about lives and its changes in the UK in the 21st century. And finally, there are other studies such as the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing focusing on later life, following certain age cohorts and shedding light on their specific experiences over time.
