Comparing data across and within longitudinal studies: challenges, opportunities and resources


(link Map)
University of Bath | Bath | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

At the Research Methods Festival 2016, CLOSER will have an exhibition stand and live demonstrations of CLOSER Discovery, an online resource that enables researchers to search the contents of eight leading UK longitudinal studies.

This session focuses upon the value of comparing data from different longitudinal studies, or different waves of the same study, and the challenges involved. Presentations will describe CLOSER-funded projects that have compared data from a number of different UK cohort studies via retrospective harmonisation of key measures, and two new CLOSER resources aimed at helping researchers who are interested in cross-study or cross-wave comparisons.

Professor Rebecca Hardy (UCL MRC Unit for Lifelong Health and Ageing), Dr Bilal Nasim (UCL Institute of Education) and Ms Gemma Seabrook (UCL Institute of Education)
