Webinar: Introduction to accessing and using European Social Survey data

9 May 2018 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Data skills

This free webinar is open to anyone with an interest in understanding and using data from the European
Social Survey (ESS). Since 2002, the ESS has collected survey data on social
attitudes across over 30 European nations using a consistent and high quality
survey methodology. It can therefore be used to understand whether and how
attitudes have changed over time and how they vary between countries. The data
themselves are freely available and easy to use.

This joint webinar between NatCen Social Research and the UK Data Service will be presented by Alun
Humphrey, UK National Coordinator for the ESS. It will demonstrate how to
access and analyse the ESS data and will provide examples of how the data can
be used and the benefits it can bring to your research.

The webinar will consist of a 40-minute presentation, followed by 20 minutes for questions.

Level: Introductory

Experience/knowledge required: A very basic knowledge of the ESS and using survey might be helpful but the
webinar will demonstrate just how simple the data are to use.

Target audience: Anyone with an interest in using ESS data. This might include researchers in academia,
government or the third sector, students and journalists.
