Online 15.00 - 16.00
This introductory webinar is intended for anyone who wants to
learn about the key survey datasets available from the UK Data Service
which provide snapshots of the UK or that allow comparisons to be made
across countries. The UK Data Service provides access to a wide range of
survey series such as the British Social Attitudes Survey, the Labour
Force Survey and the Health Survey for England. We also provide access
to a number of cross-national surveys such as such as the Eurobarometer
surveys and the European Election Studies. These surveys cover many
topics and most of them can be downloaded after a short registration.
They can be used for research or for teaching.

• access conditions and getting further help
The webinar will consist of a 30 minute presentation followed by 20 minutes for questions.
