Health Studies User Conference 2022

12 Jul 2022 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Do you want to know the latest developments in health data from social surveys? Would you like to understand more about the impact of COVID-19 on these studies and their outputs? Are you interested in research using health data?

The annual Health Studies User Conference is a one-day conference organised by the UK Data Service in collaboration with UCL and the National Centre for Social Research. This year the conference will again be held online and is free to attend.

We are very pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for this year's conference is Laura Johnson, Director of the Centre for Health Research at the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen), who will be discussing how the pandemic has affected health and health related behaviours.

There will be parallel research presentation sessions on the themes of:

  • COVID-19
  • Mental health
  • COVID-19 and Mental Health
  • Health inequalities

Each session will include talks from researchers who have conducted analyses using health data as well as a Q&A.

Attendees will also hear updates from the data producers of key UK social surveys (cross-sectional and longitudinal studies) with health-related content, such as:

  • Health Survey for England
  • Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey
  • Birth Cohort Studies
  • Understanding Society
  • English Longitudinal Study of Ageing
  • and more
