The ESRC National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) is funding a 1-day training event on Using Census Microdata, delivered by Dr Jo Wathan (Centre for Census and Survey Research) and Rachel Stuchbury (Centre for Longitudinal Study Information and User Support (CeLSIUS))
Census Microdata is the data type closest in format to the original master database of census records. (This is in contrast to Census Area Statistics (CAS), or aggregate data, which are the sum of all the individual or household microdata within a given area).
This event will provide users with an introduction to two types of census micro data;
- Samples of Anonymised Records (SARs) data – samples of census respondents at a single time and
- Longitudinal data – which follows a sample of respondents over time.
During the day participants will hear about the unique and key features of the data, how they compare with other datasets, how they can used to answer research questions and get the opportunity to use both types of data in hands-on sessions.
