Millennium Cohort Study: MCS4 Introductory Workshop Supporting the ESRC Secondary Data Analysis Initiative
Date: 7 December 2011
Location: Institute of Education, University of London
On Wednesday 7 December 2011 the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) will be holding a one-day introductory workshop on the Millennium Cohort Study: MCS4, focusing on the data from the survey carried out when the study children were aged seven years.
This event is designed for new and intending users of data from the study and is jointly organised by CLS at the Institute of Education and the Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS). It will be held at the Institute of Education in London.
The taught component includes presentations on the MCS survey; the MCS sample and issues of weights, response, non-response and attrition; and how to access data.
The hands-on component will cover a range of topics, including: linking data from all four sweeps; recoding variables; deriving new variables; examining frequencies and percentages; correlation and regression; how issues of weighting affect results; how to measure attrition and the implications this may have for research.
This is one of a series of events being run in support of the ESRC's Secondary Data Analysis Initiative. These events are designed for researchers who are not current users of these ESRC-funded data resources, and who wish to apply for grants under this Initiative.
There is a non-refundable charge of £60 (£30 for HE students) for attending, which includes lunch and workshop documentation. A limited number of free places are available for researchers under the Secondary Data Analysis Initiative.
Booking for this event is now closed.
