Description

Good afternoon,
I work at the Office for National Statistics on Children's well-being. The Understanding Society data is central to the work that I do. I am keen to use the Understanding Society: Wave 1, 2009-2011: Linked National Pupil Database dataset. I enquired with the UK Data Service, but was told that because it is secure access, it is only available to ESRC-approved FE/HE researchers.

Would it be possible for me (subject to required training etc), as a researcher at ONS, to be granted access to the linked dataset please?

Many thanks
Rachel

Dear Rachel,

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. We have checked with the UK Data Service and unfortunately we/they are only able to grant access to the linked NPD dataset to users at UK HE/FE institutions who are also Accredited Researchers, under the rules of their Secure Lab. I'm sorry but that does mean that at this time we would be unable to grant you access.

Best wishes, Victoria.
