Are you interested in research on crime? Do you want to learn about the latest developments in crime data from UK social surveys? If so, then join us for our Crime Surveys User Conference on 6 February 2024.
This free conference, organised by the UK Data Service in collaboration with the Office for National Statistics, Scottish Government and Home Office, will be held in London at Lift, Islington. The event will bring together data producers and data users to share updates on the development of recent surveys and to showcase research that is being carried out using the data. Please book your place via our event page by 12pm on 30 January if you would like to attend.
The keynote speaker for this year’s conference will be Stephen Farrall, a Professor of Criminology in the School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Nottingham, who will discuss his paper Exploring the individual-level effects of Thatcherism on crime over the life-course: Evidence from strategically-paired cohort studies. There will also be a mix of presentations from data producers and researchers who have used data from the Crime Survey for England and Wales, Scottish Crime and Justice Survey, Commercial Victimisation Survey and more.
The full conference programme has now been published and you can also follow the event via X (formerly Twitter) using the hashtag #UKDSCrime24. Please note that this will be an in-person event and there will be no option to join sessions online.
