Webinar - A new data resource: exploring trends over time using the British Social Attitudes Survey and Crime Survey for England and Wales
16 October 2017
Online, 13.00 - 14.00 GMT
This free webinar is for anyone with an interest in exploring long term changes in social attitudes and in experiences of crime using social surveys.
Presented by Professor Stephen Farrall and organised by the UK Data Service, this webinar will introduce new survey datasets, now available for download from the UK Data Service under SN7875, which bring together multiple years of data from each of the British Social Attitudes Surveys (1983-2012) and the Crime Survey for England and Wales (formerly the British Crime Survey) (1982-2012).
