Millennium Cohort Study: Introductory Workshop
Date: 8 May 2012
Location: Institute of Education, University of London
This workshop will introduce the Millennium Cohort Study, focusing on the newly available data from the survey carried out when the study children were aged seven years.
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 event is designed for new and intending users of data from the study and is jointly organised by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies (CLS) at the Institute of Education and the Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS) at the University of Essex.
There is a charge of £60 (£30 for HE students) for attending, which includes lunch and workshop documentation. Cancellations must be received within 5 working days of the event, otherwise a cancellation fee of £25 will be charged.
