Can I check when the above dataset (as mentioned here is scheduled for release and if there are any specific access requirements?
Previous linked datasets require the researcher to be in a UK institution and I wonder if the same applies to this linked dataset. Any further information on the specific scope/variables that will be linked in will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!

Dear Karen,

I'm afraid we can't give a timescale for availability of this data at the moment.

Our linked datasets at the moment are all under a Secure Access licence which does require the researcher to be based at a UK institution. This is likely to be the same, although that will be discussed at a meeting before the data is released. The DWP may also impose their own access restrictions.

I am still investigating if there is a list of proposed variables or topics to be included in the data and will let you know when I can.

Best wishes,
