Description

Hi,
Can I check when the above dataset (as mentioned here https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/linked-data/data-linkage-phases) 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,
Stephanie

Dear Karen,

The DWP data is likely to have information regarding benefit claims, but it is not yet agreed.

For more information on income data currently available, you can read this recently published working paper: https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/research/publications/525786

Best wishes,
Stephanie

Hi Stephanie

Would you have any updates on the DWP linked dataset in terms of timeline and access requirements at this stage?

Many thanks
Karen
