Prof Stephen Farrall & Dr Emily Gray, Centre for Criminological Research, School of Law, University of Sheffield
This talk will outline new datasets which are now available for download at the UKDA and which bring together into one file data from the British Social Attitudes Surveys (1983-2012) and the British Crime Survey (1982-2012). The datasets have been collated at the individual level, meaning that a range of analysis techniques can be used to interrogate them. The talk will outline the data sets and describe how they can be analysed. These data has been given standardised variable names, labels, codings etc, thereby permitting the easy use of these data. The data could be used by those who either wished to model processes of social change at the cohort level (eg birth year), or those who want to develop models at the macro level and run, for example, times series models. In this talk, we will outline the content of each of the datasets, how each data set is structured, how one may want to either use or extend the data sets, provide some caveats to their use, and explain how colleagues can access the data sets.
Tea & Coffee from 5pm and the event is followed by a wine reception at 7pm.
