Overview

We offer a range of user support. You can search through our FAQ, Issues raised by other users in the past or raise a New issue. For new data users, we offer training courses in the handling and analysis of longitudinal data.

We aim to respond to all queries within 10 working days.

Note: Please do not post any data files as an attachment to your issue as this would violate your licence agreement with UKDS https://www.ukdataservice.ac.uk/media/455131/cd137-enduserlicence.pdf
If it is necessary to post details of the data, e.g. to reference pidps, the issue will be set to private so that only the user posting the query and team members at Understanding Society can see it.

The FAQ are currently being comprehensively overhauled and updated and we will communicate the updated FAQ section once it is complete

We are keen to hear about any data issues and experiences that you have as this will help us build the best possible knowledge database for the UKHLS and BHPS data sets.
