Introduction to the UK Data Service

The UK Data Service holds the UK’s largest collection of research data. This introductory workshop is for anyone with an interest in social research who wants to hear about the vast array of resources we offer.

Participants will learn about the different types of quantitative and qualitative data we hold, how to find those data collections using our online resource discovery tools and how to register to access datasets in a number of different formats. We will also demonstrate how some of our data collections can be viewed and analysed online, as well as providing an overview of our support and training resources for students, researchers and teachers.

This free online workshop will consist of an interactive presentation with time for questions at the end.

  • Presenters: Alle Bloom and Louise Capener.
  • We will be using Mentimeter to ask questions in this workshop, so you may benefit from having a second device ready for this, such as a smartphone.

The event takes place online and starts at 11:00 CEST.
