January 2024 UK Data Service newsletter

Read the full stories in our January 2024 newsletter.

In this issue of the UK Data Service newsletter we’re promoting our upcoming events and training sessions; in February we have our Crime Survey User Conference and we’re celebrating Love Data Week with a series of workshops, including two on Mapping Crime Data in R. In April our Data Impact team will host a three-day event centred on Poverty in Data.

As we near the end of our previous funding award period we’re looking back at some of our highlights from 2017 to 2024. We revisit our rapid response to the COVID-19 pandemic, where we enabled research under lockdown conditions and the first UK census to gather data on gender identity and sexual orientation.

We also celebrate the return of in-person conferences, with a new video filmed at last year’s Health Studies User Conference and our must-listen podcast series, The Experts’ Expert; our newest episode will launch during Love Data week and features a panel of data experts discussing what this year’s theme – My kind of data – means to them.

Our regular newsletter offers Service users a way to keep up with our latest events and training opportunities, see which datasets have been featured across the media and explore opportunities to promote your own research via a case study or blog post for our Data impact team. Subscribe to receive future editions of the UK Data Service Newsletter direct to your mailbox (you can unsubscribe at any time).
