Webinar: Journey to work data in the UK – what data are available?
This webinar is jointly organised by CeLSIUS and the UK Data Service as part of the ESRC-funded data resources' collaborative webinar series, ESRC data resources: discovering data and how to use it.
The session will explore journey to work data in the UK, focusing on data from the census, in particular the longitudinal studies, including:
- Data available in the ONS Longitudinal Study, with examples of change over time
- A comparison with the Northern Ireland Longitudinal Study and Scottish Longitudinal Study
- An exploration of more detailed cross-sectional data from recent censuses
- A summary of some other UK Data Service resources that also hold data about the journey to work
If you have any queries or require further information about this event, please contact email@example.com.
The webinar series is the result of a collaboration between a number of
ESRC-funded resource centres working together to promote the value and
use of social science data. The collaboration is made up of several
organisations, including: CeLSIUS, NILS_RSU, SLS-DSU, CLOSER, Understanding Society, the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS), the UK Data Service, the National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM), and the three ESRC-funded big data centres; the Urban Big Data Centre (UBDC), ESRC Business and Local Government Data Research Centre (BLG) and Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC).
About the webinar series
The ESRC-funded data resources are running a series of collaborative webinars highlighting the wide range of data sources ready and waiting to be explored and utilised by researchers and academics. Split into four separate sessions, each focusing on a different research topic, the series aims to help novice as well as experienced data users discover new data sources that could aid their own investigations. The research topics to be featured are as follows:
- Journey to work
- Ethnicity and migration
Each hour long webinar will consist of 2-3 presentations from expert researchers, examples of how different data sources have been used in real research case studies, as well as time set aside for participants to pose questions and ask our presenters for advice.
