The cost of job loss in the UK – Dr Richard Upward (University of Nottingham – School of Economics). November 2012
Analysis to measure the effect of job loss on subsequent employment and earnings. We aim to follow individuals and their household members from 1991 onwards.
Immigration in theUK – Dr Cinzia Rienzo (National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) – dna). January 2013
I have used the LFS extensively in the past and aim to use those to carry research on immigration in the UK. My research will mainly focus on immigration and the labour market, providing statistics and figures about characteristics and outcomes of migrants in the UK.
Ranking Incomes using Stochastic Dominance – Mr Travis Smith. January 2013
The FAMEX data are used extensively as the basis for Stochastic Dominance techniques, which are used to measure welfare and inequality. This project plans to validate our coding of such techniques by duplicating previous work using FAMEX data.
Examining UK employment – Professor Neil Conway (Royal Holloway; University of London – Management). January 2013
I am writing an academic paper and I need to find descriptive statistics for the public sector (gender, age, managerial level, part-time/full-time). I wish to see whether a public sector dataset I have collected compares with a representative sample of UK public sector workers.
Crime and Age – Dr John Regan (University of Birmingham – Economics). January 2013
I am looking at the relationship between crime, age and criminal activity. Should the quality of the data be sufficient, I intend to use various econometric techniques to show that the age of teenagers changes criminal behaviour.
Econometric obesity project – Mr Maximillian Morrison (Birkbeck College – ems). January 2013
The project is on Obesity and poverty. I would like to run an OLS (ordinary least squares regression) analysis from roughly 1990-2012. I would prefer this dataset to be broken down by BMI (dependant variable) and gender, income, ethnicity, socio-economic status, physical activity, diet, etc; (independant variables).
Consumption and fiscal policy – Dr James Cloyne. January 2013
Using exogenous variation in UK tax changes since 1975, we would like to examine whether the consumption response to fiscal policy is heterogeneous across several alternative cohorts in the FES dataset.

The Cognitive Assessment of Crime and Victim Participation in the Criminal Justice System: A Multi-Method Investigation – Dr Stephanie Fohring (University of Edinburgh – HSS). January 2013
This project aims to understand the cognitive evaluations made by victims of crime and how such evaluations determine their subsequent involvement with the criminal justice system. The significance a victim attributes to an incident (whether they label it as a crime or not) is hypothesized to affect not only their decision to report a crime to the authorities but to utilise available support services. By further understanding the cognitive determinants of victim's decision making and behaviour this project has the potential to inform governmental as well as voluntary sector victim policy and interventions. In addition it will promote the use of the under-utilised SCJS whilst employing innovative and advanced research methods.

Economies of scale and sharing rules in households – Mr Weber Simon. January 2013
The goal of our paper is to provide a measure of economies of scale in households as well as the sharing rule of resources between the members.
Non EU Born Immigrants resident in Portmosuth Integration Project – Miss Vicky Toomey. January 2013
Public Health Portsmouth has been tasked with providing baseline data for Portsmouth City Council Gateway Portsmouth Project which is aimed at helping new immigrants to integrate with local communities. The project will recruit volunteers from the community and help them to develop and pass on knowledge of local resources such as English Language classes and support in areas like employment, housing and health. And it will also provide links to community organisations that might be relevant to new immigrants.
Evidence for public policy development – Dr Erin Minihan. January 2013
The data will be used to help develop a 'Tourism' account in a Social Accounting Matrix of the Northern Ireland Economy to investigate the potential of rural tourism to contribute to the wider economy. The results will provide evidence for the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development in developing rural development programmes. The results will also contribute to publications in peer reviewed academic journals on the development of tourism in computable general equilibrium techniques with rural development applications.
Academic paper – Dr Julie Brown (University of Leeds – PCI). January 2013
The data is needed to update existing statistics concerning the levels of trans national, highly skilled migration of workers in Higher education and the creative industries sectors to the UK.
Food consumption data for derivation of C4SL soil screening levels – Mr Simon Firth. January 2013
These data will be used in the project 'Development of Category 4 Screening Levels for Assessment of Land Affected by Contamination'. Consumption rate data will be used in the "Contaminated Land Exposure Model" (CLEA) to derive the soil screening levels. These screening values will be publicly and freely available to help assess the risks from land contamination in England and Wales.
