Online workshop: Exploring educational inequality using census microdata
|Dates:||7 October 2021|
|Times:||13:00 - 16:00|
|What is it:||Workshop|
|Organiser:||Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research|
This free course is aimed at those interested in learning how to use census microdata to explore aspects of social inequality. The end-user version of the 2011 census microdata contains a 5% sample of individual returns with nearly 3 million records. The course will explore the factors associated with having a degree level qualification in England. We expect the 2021 census microdata to be available next year allowing exploration of a range of social inequalities.
The course covers:
- what is contained in the census microdata – strengths and limitations
- potential research topics using census microdata
- preparing data for analysis
- combining census microdata analysis with other methods
Participants will learn what information is collected and how, how it is stored, how to access the data and how to prepare the data for different types of analysis using the statistical software of your choice (Stata, R or SPSS).
