Are you interested in research using the UK Labour Force and Annual Population Surveys? Do you want to know the latest developments in the data?

This annual conference, organised by the UK Data Service, is free to attend and will be held online.

The user conference brings data producers and data users together to share updates on the development of the surveys and to showcase research that is being carried out using the data. The programme will contain a mixture of presentations from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and researchers who use data from the UK Labour Force Survey (LFS) and Annual Population Survey (APS).
