  • Birth Cohort Studies
  • Understanding Society
  • English Longitudinal Study of Ageing
  • and moreā€¦..
The presentations from data producers will include updates on the collection of COVID-19 data, among other things.
NHS-Digital will give a presentation with the latest news on access to the health surveys they commission.
There will also be presentations from researchers based on analyses of these data.
This year the conference includes parallel break-out sessions on:
  • COVID-19 - opportunities and challenges for the health surveys
  • Data linkage - opportunities and challenges for the health surveys
  • Longitudinal studies
Each group will involve a verbal discussion among attendees. The discussion will be led by a facilitator. A series of questions will be provided to structure the discussion.
