15/09/2009 ESRC: Introductory training workshop for the Scottish Longitudinal Study
Tuesday, 15 September 2009
The Longitudinal Studies Centre - Scotland (LSCS) was established in 2001 and hosts the Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS). This study links together routinely collected administrative data for a 5.3% representative sample of the Scottish population (about 270,000 people).
This training workshop is open to academics, non-academics and students and is designed to provide a detailed introduction to the data that are available and how they may be used. The course is introductory and no prior knowledge of the SLS is anticipated.
This one-day SLS training workshop will be held at the University of Stirling.
