Data examples

Some subsets of data and a number of tables can be downloaded to be used for teaching, training, or to give users an idea of what working with the Longitudinal Study is like. 

Teaching datasets

These are extracts from the main Longitudinal Study database.  Exercises are available for each one, or you can just explore them.  They are currently available in these topics:

  • Ethnicity
  • Limiting long term illness
  • Survival
  • Regional differences


These are summary tables of categorical variables from the Longitudinal Study data. Each topic has research questions, notes on the data analysis and key findings, as well as the tables themselves.  Links will download and open Excel spreadsheets.
