Webinar: The UK Census Longitudinal datasets

6 May 2016
Online, 14.00 - 15.00

CeLSIUS and UK Data Service will be hosting a short webinar introducing the three longitudinal datasets based on the UK Census: the ONS Longitudinal Study (covering England and Wales), the Scottish Longitudinal Study and the Northern Ireland Longitudinal Study.

They are individual-level datasets based on linked census data, supplemented by official registration data including births and deaths. In Scotland and Northern Ireland other governmental data have been linked in. 

The webinar will cover:

  • an introduction to the three datasets and the research units that support them
  • some examples of research based on them
  • guidance on how you can apply to use the data
  • restrictions on use and publication that users need to know about


We expect to run as normal a service as possible during this COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emergency. Please visit our COVID-19 page for the latest information.
